So I love my birds and I've decided that in 2017 I want to kick start a mini hatchery. I'm hoping to become NPIP certified later this year or Fall 2017. I will only have 5 breeds that I will offer, but I will try make those breeds be the best that they can possibly can. I'm thinking of offering Black Copper Marans, Swedish Flower Hens, Pearl White Leghorns and Isbars. I currently breed SQ and BQ large fowl blue Cochins too. My idea is that from March 1st through July 31st I will be running a mini hatchery, most of my eggs will go into the incubators, and only loyal customers will be getting eggs for consumption. The other 7 months out of the year I will use the eggs for consumption. I still have to make a business plan etc. But I'm wondering if anyone has any tips one what should be included in it, or ideas of any sort.
