Thats a good idea to venture into poulty business ! There must be many, who have burnt their fingures, in the venture! But there are sucess stories too .. There are some tips which I think, sould help you lead to a sucessful roadmap.
You should first start working on a 'Project Report'! This will give you an idea as to how sucessful your project will be and how long it will take to break-even. It will also focus on the financial requisites for this project,which can of great help in seeking bank loans; if so desired. You can take help of a consultant or a CA.
There are a few points you should bare in mind, before you jump start into poultry farming business.
a) Location - your poultry farm should be situated in a area which is not exposed to extreme climatic conditons .. specially during summer's, where the teperatures soar & affect the prfitability due to high mortality rates. Your poultry should be situated away from other poulty farms preferably at a radius of 3-5kms!
b) Equipment & live stock - There are many Hatcheries which deliver day old chicks to your farm. You will have to check the one which closest to your farm and which has a proven 'timely' delivery record. This goes well with the feed companies too. You should opt for the lastest feeding, watering & lighting equipments which will save on your labour cost. You should also tie up with a good vet. doctor who can visit your farm at regular intervals and who is easy approachable during crisis. Keep a schedule for vaccinations and medication in consultation with Vet.
c) Finance - You need to have financial strengt to support your routine cycle and should have an additional back-up for the continuation, during contegiencies like deseise outbreak or high credit leverage. The word of caution, is to have an insurance cover in place for your live stock & equipment. Even though it adds up to your production cost.
d) Marketing - The sucess story is written when you are be able to market your product well! You need to have total control on your selling price which is possible when you have your own marketing network. You should have a local market survey done to know the local demand for your product and the market price. You should 'produce' what you can 'sell'!
Inovation and expanding your market horizons will be a key to your sucess. All the best!
