Contact a Breeder
I've done is contacted Bo Garrett to see if he has any chicks or eggs for sale.
Build a breeding coop
This is where my dad is having issues, he doesn't understand that in order to have a successful career/business/operation I need a separate coop in which to keep the Cochins so they aren't with my free ranging birds.
My chickens aren't spoiled whatsoever, they don't need a fancy coop or anything, so I wouldn't need a fancy coop to keep them in.
I've designed something myself which is a 16x16 coop divided into 4 sections.
I would pay for all the materials myself.
Convince my dad that i want to be a poultry breeder
My dad does not understand that i feel that poultry is my calling, whenever i even mention a second coop he either ignores me or laughs.
He doesn't understand that i need certain things in order to have my poultry business be a success.
So i need help on how to convince him that it's what i really want to do in life.
