    This old man i know sales chicks year around.He sales them at a 1/3 of the price as anyone elses does. He is retiring and im thinking about picking up when he retires. He says i should but others think i will have problems selling chicks year around. I need peoples input on this.Thanks

    I think it depends. If he's able to sell them all year and he can point the people that want to buy them in your direction I would say go for it. That said, it can be really hard to sell chicks in the winter because it's a hard time of year to raise them. But if you're already going to have built-in customers, I would think it's doable. If you'd have to start from scratch customer wise, you'd want to be prepared for the possibility that they won't sell and you'll have to raise them all winter.

    Also, :welcome!
