I am considering a side gig as a chicken consultant. Looking for some advice. DH makes a good living, and I want for nothing, but it would be nice to have some extra money for my hobby of poultry raising. I am have been raising chickens for about 4 years now, and I have l amassed a ton of knowledge, largely in thanks to everyone here at BYC! I already have friends who ask me questions all the time about different situations. When I went to our local Tractor Supply Farm store the other day, I bought some chicks (sorry honey . While I was waiting, I must have answered at least 6 questions from people about the chicks and chicken raising in general. ( My favorite: "What happens if I get a rooster?", a woman said out loud. My response "The you have dinner in a few months." Her husband smiled.) While I live on the opposite coast, in Silicon Valley, there is a woman charging $225/hr for her services. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news...tatus-symbol-chickens/?utm_term=.a15eb860e914 "It’s not uncommon here to see chickens roaming in their owners’ homes or even roosting in bedrooms, often with diapers on, according to Leslie Citroen, 54, one of the Bay Area’s most sought after “chicken whisperers,” who does everything from selling upscale chickens and building coops to providing consultation to backyard bird owners. Her services cost $225 an hour. Want a coop and walk-in pen (known as a run)? You can expect to pay $4,000 to $5,000 for a standard setup. Citroen has had thousands of customers over the years, she said, giving her a front-row seat to the Bay Area’s growing obsession." I wouldn't even charge half that, but people are willing to pay, particularly when it is late at night and they think something could be wrong with their pet. Many backyard chicken raisers do consider their chickens as pets. As an aside, most vets will not see poultry. While the internet has a lot of data, sometimes it is better to have someone to walk you through certain situations. Any advice would be appreciated.
