My parents are making me start a business plan as I am a minor and unlike a lot of minors my parents do not pay for anything. LAYING This year I am restarting my laying flock. I have all of those birds i want marked down along with the prices. I have estimated the money I should make off of eggs by the new birds by the end of 2017, not subtracting expenses, but I never have that much expense wise anyways. I have it written down what I am doing with my current birds. Whether it is butchering or taking to a sale Currently today I have to go and take inventory of my birds. I have the coop already and I just have to buy some new things like some nipple Waterers, insulate it, fix some holes in the bottom, and put some new roosts in. COCHIN BREEDING The thing I like to do the most though is breed and show my LF Cochins. Currently I have 3 birds, i am hoping to purchase 2 more using money from 4H last year. Sometime this year preferably sooner then later I would like to build a coop that I have plans drawn out for. It would probably cost more then $1000. I am then planning on setting eggs in April from these 5 birds so that their offspring can be over a year before the first show. I'm not planning on selling any of their first few batches unless they have dequalifcations or something I don't want in my breeding.
