    It's wonderful to have dreams.

    I'd love to be able to retire someday and raise chickens, have a milk cow, perhaps a pig or two.

    But it's not to be.

    Good luck with your plans and dreams, you are young, they are still possible.

    Making a living in anything poultry related is going to be a hard road to travel. "Chronic overproduction" has been a problem in American agriculture nearly since the beginning. It can be done, but it's not going to be an easy job or a particularly renumerative one.

    All of that said though the skills and experience you will gain by succesfully breeding and showing quality birds will help you in just about any future career field you'll one day enter. It takes patience, responsibility, dedication, a willingness to defer a worthwhile payoff while you are paying your dues learning, and a considerable amount of analytical skill to produce good birds that people will want to buy. Make yourself a success doing this and you'll be ready to do the same in a field that will support you for the rest of your life.
