I'm wondering how many of you breed to help cut the costs of raising your flocks. I currently am raising geese, turkeys, ducks and chickens to try and pay for my HUGE hobby! I also like to offer folks a few hens at a time so they don't have to purchase 15-25 at a time. So, what do you raise and sell? How many breeders of each do you keep to meet your goals? How many offspring do you sell on average per year? I'll start, 1.I will be raising Narragansett turkeys for meat and to sell (if my hens ever lay )I have 2 Toms and 4 Hens 2.I will be raising Toulouse geese to sell and for meat.I have a pair. 3.I will be raising Ancona ducks to sell.Right now I have a trio. 4.I will be breeding BLRW's(not sure how many I will keep yet), Bantam Blue Cochins(2 Roos and 10 hens), and Silkies (not sure what colors yet) 5.I also sell eggs for hatching and for eating! I have only just started selling so i don't have numbers yet,but around here pullets go quick of any breed! Thought it might be interesting to see how people pay for their addiction .. Looking forward to the replies!
