Hatchery Worker

The Job:

When you go travelling, nobody expects every job to be glamorous and working as a Hatchery Worker in a Poultry Hatchery is certainly not a high contender on the glamour charts. But if you are looking to make some good money for your next travel adventure, this could be the job for you.
The Perks:

  • Poultry Farms/Hatcherys pay well and usually offer a lot of work on a regular basis
  • As well as chickens, the one thing you are sure to see at a Poultry Farm is travellers, so it’s not a bad way to make some new travelling buddies.

Previous work experience required:

No previous experience is required as a Hatchery Worker and all the training is done on the job. You just need to be healthy, fit, reliable and willing to roll up your sleeves and put in the hard work.

The $$$:

As a Hatchery Worker, you can expect to be paid between $15-$27 per hour at most Poultry Farms/Hatcherys.

The word on the street:

“Working at the Poultry Hatchery was better than what I expected. You have to get used to the smell, but where I worked they kept it really clean and the chickens were well taken care of. I worked there for 8 weeks and earned enough money to do a trip up the West Coast of Australia.” Jon, UK.
