    I am just starting up a small scale chick sales business and was wondering if anyone out there had any advise. I am sure I am not the first to try this so...

    Nutshell, I am hatching one batch of chicks a month and ordering another a month, trying to keep them about two weeks apart to give me time to decrease 'inventory' between groups. So far it's slow but I have only been at it for a month.

    So lay it on me, O Sages! I would love to avoid extra mistakes!
