Are you complaining that it is harder to make ends meet every month? Are you complaining that it is harder to find real green food in the supermarket? Do you want to do something to supplement your income? If the answers to these questions are yes, and if you have a backyard, you can raise some chickens. By doing so, you can enjoy fresh eggs and meat. You can also improve your household financial condition, or even run your own business.

Making money by raising chickens is not hard. They are easy to care for and their products are easy to be sold. Actually, compared to products from big fowl-run, eggs and chicken produced from backyards are more popular because of their great tastes and high nutrition.

There are three ways to make money through raising chickens.

First, make money by selling eggs. The first thing you should do is to estimate how many hens you can keep in your backyard. It is better to provide at least 2 square feet for each hen, because overcrowding is not good for hens’ growth. Then building chicken coop and laying boxes for them. It usually takes 4 to 5 months for them to start laying eggs. The next work will be calculating how many eggs your hens can produce each day and find local customers to sell your eggs.

The second way to make money is selling meat of your chickens. Nowadays, more people are aware of the importance of health food. Many customers are looking for chicken that is raised with a free range method. Compared to making money by selling eggs, it will take less time to raise baby broilers to maturity. Another thing you should consider is: will you process them by yourself or let a local butcher to do it for you.

There is another way to make money by raising chicken. Because chicken manure is rich in nutrients, many people who plant flowers or vegetables look for fertilizer from local farmers or local feed stores. So you can manufacture the excellent fertilizer by collecting chicken’s manure regularly. Vegetable plants of local gardeners can benefit from your chicken’s waste, while you can benefit from selling this fertilizer.

In one word, raising chicken has a low start-up cost and is not very difficult. You can enjoy their great tasting products, supplement family income and let your kids enjoy the fun with these creatures.
