What i hate the most is when i tell family or friends about me wanting to go into the poultry buisness, they always ask... "You mean like working for foster farms?" Uhhh..... NO. I mean like starting my own line of free rangers starting my own buisness. If i work for somebody else, i end up working with sick, gross birds and i cant own, go near or eat the eggs of my own chickens. Why would i ever work for them? I think not.
Good for you!
My family has just given up. As long as they get eggs they don't really care what I do with my chickens, or how many I have. My mom thought we had 3 Salmon Faverolles for ever! Umm, we only ordered 2 in the first place, and remember when we sold that one? Yeah... I swear I could order 200 roos and they wouldn't have a clue until they started ceowing, and even then it might take a LONG time.
