    This is my business adventure story. Hope you enjoy it.

    Hi my name is Ben. I started Big Ben Farms. I am a 15 year old high school student. I am trying to save up money for my farm by breeding and selling chickens.I started my breeding program with Ameraucanas. I love my Ameraucanas but I am making a change to imported English Orpingtons.

    I plan to use my chickens to help pay for my college tuition, which will greatly help because my parents because they have five kids to supply for. I would love to even help pay for my brothers college tuition if I can make enough money off of my loved chickens.

    Right now I am trying to save up enough money to build a nice chicken coop to suit my breeding plans. The problem is the building that I would like to build, is going to cost somewhere around $2000. That much money is hard to find being 15. Nobody wants to hire me because I am 15 and don't have a valid drivers license. So it is hard to get adequate funds. Now I didn't cone hear to give you a pity story in hopes of donations. I was hoping for any advice or tips on how to make it in the chicken breeding business.

    If you enjoyed my story and support young people striving to be farmers, I would love it if you would donate to my cause. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and god bless you!

    :welcome

    I wish you good luck in your new business adventure. I will forewarn you that chickens are not cheap and most times not profitable. I will never come close to "breaking even" or profiting.

    Surprised that you have no local companies willing to hire 15 year olds.....we have grocery stores, resturants, landscaping companies, as well as local farmers around here are always looking for good help.

    Let us know how it turns out:D. Best of luck.
