So who here has information on what needs to be done to sell eggs as a business? I plan on selling the majority of the eggs from 20 hens and I would like to do it as a small business. I have heard of opening a checking account under a business name and name myself as the sole proprietor. I do have 6 acres and I am under the impression I could write-off some of the property tax (I free range for several hours a day) as well as the feed and other supplies I use to keep the chickens. Any help would be appreciated.
