My husband and I raise breeding poultry (yup, chickens). We’ve been building up the business, putting in almost $50,000, and have been waiting for a return. We have more than 300 chickens, but some of them are juveniles, chicks, and roosters. We were hoping for more eggs than we were getting at the time.
Then one day, the Lord asked me to bless the chickens. To be honest, I couldn’t stand them! I also realized that I had an “I’ll wait and see if this is going to be profitable before I jump in” kind of mindset and wasn’t really supporting my husband. I am an educated doctor and couldn’t dip down into poultry land.
But I felt the Lord saying, “Who wins when you have that attitude? What if you lost everything and didn’t even support your husband? You’ve never given your heart to what he’s doing.” So I went and blessed the chickens to feel safe and welcome, comfortable and healthy, and start laying and multiplying.
A day or two later, we collected two dozen eggs! Three days later, we collected three dozen and the next day four dozen. My husband made $700 in one week, and it keeps increasing! We went from five or six eggs a day in the beginning of January to 74 today.
Now that I’ve blessed the chickens, I help my husband, and we do it together. It’s a part of our lives, and we now have a profitable business.
