Dirty Jobs - Season 1, Episode 7: Chick Sexer - radiokotermak.com
Helping the world raise chickens successfully since ! Wow, what an eye-opening experience. When we first get our chicks, we treat them like their made of glass, gently lifting them from the box and placing them in the brooder with all the loving care of a first time Mom. Turns out the things are built like Tonka trucks! The sexers were picking up the chicks, squeezing out their poop like you would pop up a zit, sexing the chick and then sorting them into boxes by "flipping" them a pretty good distance into a box already filled with dazed chicks.
Chicken sexers have one of the more unique jobs out there. Most people have never even heard of this odd profession. Have you? At big farms and large commercial chicken hatcheries, thousands of chickens are born every single day.
