I know that this may sound silly but please be praying for us. My husband has decided to start raising chickens and selling the eggs. I know that this seems small for some but for our family it is BIG. My husband for a year now has been wanting to find something to do as a family. My dad who lives next to us ( we share a yard ) had chickens for the past few years and we loved them. He did not have to many but a few to get some from fresh eggs for the family. My children use to go in and get the eggs, and they were just fun to have a round. Anyhow, my dad last year decided to get rid of the last chicken that was alive and get out of the chicken phase, and that is where we are taken over.
My husband is wanting to make it a something for the family to do together and if we get enough eggs he wants to put a sign out by the road and try to sell some and go from there. We don't know much about chickens. I know that he is wanting to do it all organic. Sooooo we have started a worm farm and he is wanting to start on some maggots ewwwww.
He also are getting some turkeys and my dad use to have some of them and they were the coolest. At that time, before we built this home, we lived in a trailer on this property and we would wake to stomp, stomp, stomp on our roof. All 5 of the turkeys would be marching along. Or we would go outside and they would be resting on the railing outside of house.
Anyhow, pray for us that this might be something that turns out great for out family, something fun.
