    I'm fairly new to this but I'm wanting to make an extra income from raising chickens. Is it really possible to do that

    Good luck! I think many of us are just happy if we can cover the feed bill with what we make from our chickens.

    Hello and :welcome

    We are glad you joined us! I agree with frindizzle. I do at as a side business myself, I only have a few customers because I only have a few chickens, but selling eggs can help to pay almost all if not all of your feed expenses. It helps me a great deal! Sometimes I even have enough to buy my hens a special loaf of grass for their good hard egg production work. Also the website that frindizzle gave you is really good. That is the website that you should use for reaserch.

    Once again :welcome
