    Hi, I want to start a chicken hatchery in my farm, but where do I start besides the chicken. I have couple hens and roosters, and a small chicken coops. How big should my coop be, should I built a barn or anyone know how I could get a decent barn that doesn't cost a lot. Appreciate any advice out there.

    The first thing I would do is buy a book called "Storey's Guide to Raising Chickens." You can find them used on amazon .com.

    This book will tell you everything you need to know from hatching to processing, coop designs to feeding and everything in between.
