Chickens can be expensive. Even if you don’t count the coop, the feed and bedding are monthly expenses that add up a lot! I’ve tried many different ways to make money from my chickens but the most profitable way just fell into my lap! When I started with chickens, I decided to hatch the chicks from eggs I ordered from a breeder. When word got out that I had hatched chicks, I started getting calls from people who wanted to buy them. Over the years I’ve had as many as 90 chickens and as few as six. I’ve realized that by setting things up the right way I can make up to $1,000 a month on as few as 15 chickens.
