Thanks for your input ahead of time. Also if you are selling successfully how did you get started?


No offense or anything....but try gain some experience before you try and do something like that. You need to know a lot about chickens in order to successfully get into breeding chickens. By "successful" i don't mean profit making, because you won't make a profit. What i mean by "successful" as a breeder is that you are somehow furthering the breed(s) you are breeding and marketing quality birds to people. In order to be successful, you need to know a lot. Not only about raising chicks, hatching eggs, caring for birds, etc but also flock management and marketing your birds too. What breed(s) are you looking to breed? What qualities in the breed are you wanting to achieve? Egg laying? Showing? Pets? Where will your startup costs come from? Why should people buy birds from you instead of your competition? I could probably type 10 pages on this stuff. But the short answer is that it is never as easy as it sounds. There are so many aspects of breeding birds that beginners don't even consider. You can't just throw in a rooster and some hens and then hatch some eggs. I probably sound like a downer and all....but i don't mean to be. People have gone and bred birds and been very successful. But these people were very experienced in both chicken care and genetics. They know what to breed to what and how to care for it and how to raise it. I just want to prevent you from making the mistake of investing a lot of money and time into a flock and have things go wrong. If i were you i would try to focus on your current flock and then work your way up to breeding. Nothing good happens when you rush things. It has taken 100 years for the Underwood RIR line to be bred into what they are today.
