Post I AM CANADIAN

And if you've never seen the rant about being Canadian, that's okay, it was over-rated. It's on YouTube if you want to watch it.

I live in Central Canada, west of Winnipeg, and I'm employed in the agriculture industry as a poultry technician. I ride horse back (I own two,) fly FlightGear flight simulation on the internet, and my e-reader was primarily for PDF files related to flying and flight, but then a friend on the net pointed me here, so I'll have a look around. I'm also very active on 2 nets on IRC.

My reading is primarily historical fiction, fantasy and science fiction, general novels and articles about either horses or flying.

I have to ask.......exactly what does a "poultry technician" do?

Welcome trennor!

I think the Bombers have lost five games this year by four points or less! Right now I would say that there is no team in the league that stinks.

Hi trennor. Sorry but we are not letting any more Canadians join the Forum till you stop sending all those damn Alberta Clippers down here, eh.

Shoot, I didn't think you'd fall for that one. So, welcome to MobileRead

My particular job is to raise laying breeding stock from day-old pullets to laying-age and weight. This involves feeding, watering (most of which is automatic but still needs an eye,) balancing food and nutrient requirements, monitoring the birds daily and removing those unsuitable or have died, general cleaning and maintenance, as well as specified vaccinations when required according to a timetable set out by the geneticists.

In addition, I help process pullets in the hatchery at hatching time by vaccinating etc as they're readied for shipment to layer barns.
