So my Ant was thinking of getting into chickens. She and I talk about my chickens all the time and I sold her many a dozen of eggs, so she decided that she would like a flock as well so she can have fresh eggs all the time and watch chicken TV for her self and not have to live vicariously through me lol. I was very happy as this would just give her and I even more to talk about, but a lil sad at the same time as this meant I would be losing yet another egg customer. But I have been very helpful and supportive of her this whole process of getting a flock (and I even got her to join BYC ). But before she got her flock she popped a question that really caught me off guard she asked if I make a profit from my chickens. I was dumb founded I have honestly never even thought of weather I make a profit. I thought about it and immediately came to the conclusion that no I dont make any profit at all, I have 9 chickens and only 4 hens are laying and I get about 3 eggs a day. I sell those eggs for 2.00$ a dozen, I also sell extra roos at around 3.00$ a chicken. But my feed, treats, housing, and all that jazz for my guys takes out any money I make. But I didnt get them for the money lol they are my hobby, a joy in my life not a source of income in any since. But this got me thinking who out there makes a profit from their flock? If so how do you manage this lol?
