If you own a TV, computer, or any type of mobile device, you most likely know the job market isn’t exactly what it used to be. But just as it appears we’ve lost hope in this grim time of unemployment, a BEAKon of hope shines through.

The Minnesota State Fair is having difficulty finding bird judges to examine animals during competitions throughout the 12-day Great Minnesota Get-Together. Apparently finding qualified people to judge bird competitions has become an increasingly difficult task across many Minnesota counties, reports KSTP.

Judge duties can range from inspecting feather coloring to weighing in on the straightness of a chicken’s legs.

Surprisingly, these judges can really bring home the bacon eggs; judges can make between $150 and $350 per fair. Thankfully performing the chicken dance is not included in the job description.
