In the Brooder
Jul 21, 2021
Hello :) i go by lily and im 21 years old. I started raising chickens as a small hobby when COVID-19 first hit but now it’s a lifesaver for me. I was born with HLHS (Hypoplastic left heart syndrome) so i have never been able to play sports, be in band, or work or be outside a whole lot. having chickens though has given me a new purpose and outlook on life, as i spend a lot of my time outside just watching them play and eat and taking care of them. I currently have 5 ISA browns and 11 Rhode Island Reds, but i’m looking forward to expanding my horizons by getting other breeds. I sell eggs as a side job and I love that my chickens help give back to my community. I would like to possibly make a living/career out of this so if anyone has advice on that i would greatly appreciate it :)

Hi hun and welcome. Personally i have always found the quickest way to loose my love &enjoyment of doing something is to add the pressure of it being a job or relied up on sorce of income. I also dont think it would be financially viable to raise chickens in the way we do , eg treats and best quallity ? Well everything really, you even need more space while at the same time each chicken tends to get less and less. Id just carry on enjoying them!
