in that case you should only handle fish, beef, or poultry with single use gloves. Forget about cutting, tenderizing, or other prep which can cause a cross contamination nightmare. Washing chicken isn't causing anymore cross than those
But washing chicken is unnecessary so why take the risk

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

All packaged/boxed beef and poultry is washed. Kosher or not. Kosher just has an extra few washes.
If the poultry goes through a 3rd party packer/distributer  then it may even get washed again before (re)packing.

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

If it was sealed at the plant then probably no one. At your local butcher you would need to check on their sanitary policies and enforcement.

Do you wash/rinse your chicken?

No, I just hold it and swing, but usually I wear gloves .

I should add that many (most?) plants also have an antibacterial intervention stage before processing.

Yes and washing does nothing but spread contamination.

The gross factor has nothing to do with germs.
May you slide down the banister of happiness & get many splinters of success up your career.

You are eating a bird and you are worried about a human touching it?

Not once you buy it from the butcher/supermarket

I make a point to kasher (at least some) of my kapporos chickens at home (and yes, they do get rinsed, as that is part of the process) so that my kids grow up getting a real experience of what needs to happen, rather than just "kosher chicken comes from the store and gets cooked".
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
