Chick Sexer Jobs Are Open And Pay 60K In The U.K. – Yes, Really! What if I told you that you could make $61,300 a year and you get to hang out with cheeping, fluffy baby chicks all day? Doesn’t sound too bad, right? Well, what if part of your job description included being a “chick sexer” and required you to determining the gender of those fuzzy little guys? That doesn’t sound quite as nice, but it’s a well paying job that is in high demand in the U.K. right now, so slap on a pair of gloves and get sexing! In fact, the demand is so high for “chick sexers” that companies are losing business as a result. There is said to be a shortage of baby chicks being shipped off without anyone to determine the gender of the little fluff balls. Oh the horror! The U.K. reportedly only has 100 to 150 chickadee checkers to date, according to an NBC News report. So why is this position so hard to fill? For starters, the business of looking under a baby chicks skirt doesn’t sound all that appealing, especially when you consider how many chickens you’d have to check out on a daily basis. Basically it’s a monotonous job and can be kind of gross for lack of a better word. There are two methods of gender determination and this can definitely impact how one feels about their job. Method one is called “vent sexing” and it is pretty much what it sounds like it is. The qualified “chick sexer” is required to inspect the baby chicks insides to determine the gender. Hopefully you’ll at least get to buy the chick dinner before getting up close and personal with the poor thing. Vent sexing certainly requires a sharp eye to ensure accuracy which you’ll be able to perfect during your three years of training. The second method is far these invasive and has been dubbed “feather sexing.” This process of gender identification is done by closely examining the shape and length of the chick’s wings, which will enable you to tell if you should call the baby chick Sam or Samantha. “Chick sexers” are required to be incredibly speedy in their work as most in the position are required to check roughly 700 chicks each hour and maintain an accuracy rate of 98%. So, go ahead and grab your passport to head across the pond for a future as a “chick sexer.” This may just be the job for you if you’re feeling adventurous and don’t mind having a torrent of chicken choking jokes rumble through your head. Plus, your salary will make it possible to stock up on the hand sanitizer you’re bound to go through in order to wash the word day away.
