What is my most important skill that I can use in starting my business this year? Well, probably the most important skill that I can use is working knowledge. I am wanting to grow chickens for their eggs. Every year I get chicks from Rural King and grow them through the year and the next spring they start laying. Every day I water and feed them, some may die, but their are more. Chickens are really fun too play with and they are good to snuggle with. And since their eggs are fresh they are healthier than most chicken eggs. This is my small business and it is fun.
