Operational Details
Feeding, watering, cleaning and maintenance of equipment and facilities are the major activities.

Egg producers in this category collect the eggs, grade, candle, and sell to retail outlets, or wholesale egg producers. Smaller operations may also sell door-to-door, but is only a small part of this overall industry. Included are poultry breeder farms that produce fertile eggs for hatcheries.

The operation of a rabbit farm is also similar to that of a poultry farm. These farms are involved in breeding, raising and selling of rabbits. They maintain a stock of breeding animals, and only the offspring are sold. Does are kept in individual cages with their offspring, until the offspring reach an age of eight weeks and a weight of five pounds. The marketable animals are sold and trucked to a processing plant.

It is becoming common practice in the poultry industry, to hire companies to come to their farm and physically gather the chickens up, crate them and load them onto a waiting truck to be hauled away. This is incidental to the poultry industry and fits in this category but because they themselves are not poultry farmers, this type of operation is considered mandatory.
