If you’re a small-scale producer and interested in starting your own poultry business, it’s important to decide which sector of the industry you want to serve.
This will determine how you go about setting up a business and making money. One option is to hatch and sell day-old chicks to the big producers.
This means that you are only involved at the first stage and are not concerned with growing the chicks at all.
A second option is to buy day-old chicks yourself and grow them, selling them as fully-grown chickens. Another option is to become involved in the entire process, including slaughtering.
