I am doing my taxes for 2010. 1 question is farm related- expenses and income. I sold 50.00 worth of eggs this year from my 11 hens, but built a coop in the spring for them, spent approximately 600. on chicken feed, etc....can I claim to have losses as a 'farmer'? It doesn't say what size of a farm operation you need to have......Please advise- I'm trying to have less to pay the IRS. Thanks!
