My husband regularly discusses entrepreneurship, business, income and work with our sons. They are being encouraged to dream up business ideas, work out figures and numbers and jump at opportunities that come along–now while they are young. One of our sons has been churning over getting an egg business up and going. With owners of restaurants already talking to him about his eggs, that has been pure motivation for him to really kick his business plan into high gear.
Last week he spent a lot of time building…building a chicken tractor for his Rhode Island Red chicks that he bought last month. We have gone from a having a few chickens, to having almost 70 chickens and he is wanting to buy more.
He is currently thinking up egg-mobile ideas for when these chicks are laying. He keeps his eyes out for potential egg-mobiles….things like old wagons or old trailer beds….you know—junk—that he can turn into a mobile chicken laying house to “beautify” our field with.
