Hi everyone, I have been raising peafowl for over 20 years, and I currently have a flock of about 20 breeder birds. This is a hobby for me, but I am wondering about starting it as a legit business, maybe an LLC or something else. It would allow me to do tax writeoffs, and maybe become a tax exempt hobby farm. I am wondering what anyone else has done. I see lots of people with farm names on advertisements, and I am curious if they just made up a farm name and started advertising, or if they filled out the forms to become a legit (with the government) hobby farm or business. I feel that if I want to advertise as a farm name, I need to be legit with the government. Any hints from people that have done this? Has anyone done this?

The lack of replies should tell you something :wow
I have been involved in hatching and raising peafowl since 1988 and will have to tell you

In high school I just made a farm name, website, and did a bit of advertising in the UPA magazine. I am super small though so it really is a hobby. I only have seven peafowl and this year I wasn't allowed to do any hatching haha.
