    The poultry industry has very strict bio-security and animal welfare standards, so all employees are restricted from keeping pet birds, poultry and pigs and residing with others who work at other poultry or pig farming work sites. Therefore, if you have poultry, birds or pigs kept at your house, you cannot work for Darwalla in this role. Our farms are all shower-on & shower-off facilities.

    • meet bio-security requirements
