Hatchery Hourly - Concord NC
Occasionally will need to stack chickens onto pallets themselves.
Keep vaccine lab clean and free of dirt, dust, and contaminants
Communicate with broiler growers concerning delivery times for chicks.
The chick floor administrator has multiple duties, requiring the ability to multitask. Vaccine mixing is highly important as the effects of improper mixing can cause increase in mortality in the field, as well as causing problems in processing the birds at the plant. Improper vaccinating can lead to increase in trim, and an increase in condemnation at the processing plant.
He/she must be accurate on keeping counts of chickens from each flock, as this is used as the basis of many performance indicators of the hatchery, as well as qualifying breeder growers for hatch bonuses. This requires adequate simple math skills; addition, subtraction, and division.
The chick floor administrator at the Center hatchery is also asked to perform quality control checks including verifying chick boxes are getting the right number of chickens, and using agar plates to check for contamination in various areas of the hatchery. It is helpful, but not required, to have a basic understanding of microbiology.
At the end of each day, he/she will organize the loads for the next day. This involves knowing how to stack the pallets in order to put the right number of chickens for each house (i.e.
A house that holds 18,200 birds will receive one pallet stacked 12 boxes high, and one pallet with 6 stacks 11 high, and 2 stacks 10 high). Basic math skills are required to complete this duty. Then the pallets must be organized into truck loads in such a way to limit the amount of driver time, and mileage, required to haul the loads. From there, a delivery time is estimated, and each broiler grower and service tech is called and informed of what time the birds will be arriving. It is important to be accurate with this information as growers often pay hired help to unload the birds and need an accurate time.
This position requires adequate computer skills, solid basic math skills, and good communication skills. A good chick floor administrator is prompt to work (hatchery cannot run until vaccine is mixed), and pays close attention to detail in all things that they do.
They must be self-motivated and responsible for their work. If he/she is doing their job well, everything runs smoothly. If they make mistakes, the effects can often be felt in the field or at the processing plant.
