Ten is a lot to me. So I guess that would depend on who you ask. Lol
Speaking of chickens my Aunt Ethel had a chicken farm too back in the 40’s-60’s. It was a real small small farm though. Nothing like Brians……Did I ever mention I also know how to grill a beer can lemon chicken 🙂April 6, 2014 at 12:51 am #113988

I also have three chicken barns where I grow about 700,000 chickens a year.
So the question is… do you eat chicken? If you do, do you slaughter them yourself or buy them?

Been at this for about 17 years. I have worked under and beside professionals from most trades. I do everything from a bit of excavation, concrete forming/finishing, framing, drywall hanging/tape/texture, stucco, painting, doors/windows, trim, cabinets, and roofing. I don’t want to but I could dable in plumbing. I worked for an excavating/plumbing company for about 2 1/2 years and learned a ton of stuff.
So to answer the question, I do most of it and know a lot. But I don’t do enough and definitely don’t know it all. I hope I never do know it all because that would be boring.April 6, 2014 at 3:11 pm #114230NJBuilderProBrick, NJ, 500,000 HAM
To me I can’t fathom seeing 2 million chickens a week going through a plant. That number seems crazy. “Growing” 700,000 in a year seems crazy to me too. Do you need to truck them or do they get picked up? Lol.April 7, 2014 at 12:19 pm #114731NyxProPittsburgh, PA
When you start to look into the practices of these kinds of factories you’re almost guaranteed to see something you wish you didnt know that makes you never want to buy chicken again and raise your own. FOOD INC. anyone?April 7, 2014 at 1:49 pm #114750brianpetersProMurray, KY

I’ve been through the plant, I still love to eat chicken! I watched FOOD INC. once, I felt like some things were exaggerated some. In probably every industry there are things happen that aren’t always right, that documentary seemed to highlight all those things and lead the viewer to believe it was the norm.
As to the other question, no, I don’t truck them to the plant. The company I grow for does that, all I do is provide the barns, the utilities, and make sure the conditions are optimal for peak growing performance and bird comfort! 🙂April 7, 2014 at 2:48 pm #114756

I thought maybe you were going to tie the 2 together. I could see some possibilities.April 7, 2014 at 7:56 pm #114875jim_hunt17ProMilwaukee, WI
I have been working in building maintenance and property management for about 8 years. 4 years doing maintenance in huge medical clinics and now onto residential condominiums. I wouldnt consider myself a expert in anything but can tackle mostly anything from roofing to small electric or plumbing jobs.
I am also finishing my bachelors degree in Communication full time. Not sure what I am going to do with it but I wanted a college degree.

I guess I never really even considered combining the two. Now that you mention it though it could be very interesting.April 8, 2014 at 12:07 am #115180
