Making Money With Chickens

If you have a flock of chickens, you are well aware of how expensive they can be. Have you ever considered making them pay their own way? Many years back I decided I needed a "no freeloaders" policy and since then, not only have the chickens paid their way, they've paid quite a few other bills as well!

Make money from your chickens book.

In June of this year I wrote about making money selling chicks. My article: How I make $1,000 a month with just 15 chickens was a huge hit. That blog post had more views in the first weekend then my blog normally gets in a whole month! (make sure you read that post, it has tons of money making info!)

I received so many messages from people wanting more information, asking questions and wanting more details. I decided right then that I needed to write down everything I do to make money with chickens. 
I wrote the book Making Money With Chickens so I could give you every detail on hatching, every way I find customers, every way I make money. I wrote it all out and put it all in a book which is now available on Amazon

I make the most money from my chickens by selling chicks, so this book’s main focus is on the business of breeding chickens to sell their chicks. Absolutely anyone can learn to breed chickens and sell chicks...and you can use this information to breed ducks, geese, quail, guinea fowl or any other poultry!
