What is the best way to find people to buy your chicks? I want to get into breeding. The last time I hatched I waited until after they hatched to find buyers. No one bought them
I am part of the FFA so I’m sure I could find some buyers through the school. ThanksConnections are best. I have a few people that know I have good, healthy birds and they come yo me when they need the kind I have, and send people they know are looking to me
That’s a good idea. I can ask the feed store I go to to see if they will let me. They may even allow me to sell chicks at their chick day in the spring. Thank you!Can you post a sign or notice at your local co-op or feed store?

I’ve been out of school for about 2 months, so I haven’t really been able to talk to people. I will get in contact with my teachers and tell them to contact me if anyone is interested in chicks. What are some breeds that most people are interested in? I have 7 lavender Orpington hens that I bred last time.Good connection right there. Do you know if anyone is looking to buy a particular breed? One thing about selling is having what your customers want. That's easier than trying to convince them to buy what you have.
That’s a good idea! I could do that on school bulletin boards and/or on Craigslist (I’m not allowed to have Facebook :/ or I’d do it on there)My sister posted daily and weekly pictures of the incubation process.
She had people contacting her and she had them pay 100% up front with a refund only if enough didn't hatch.
She sold out of her first big batch and was able to do two more big batches to sell.
