Hi Vivek,

We are doing poultry Privately, and we are running into loss. Even if you do it with integration/contract, I don’t think you will make a good profit out of it. This poultry business you can’t control all by your self, whether it is a private or contract. Everything will be controlled by others. Marketing is difficult phase, also feeding, they eat feed like anything… 

But , if you still wants to do this business , you can do it. Start with integration, so that you will come to know about business and difficulties(One has to be always there at farm, otherwise Labors will suck all…).

Before you start, you do lots of research. visit various farms around and discuss about Loss/Profit. You check with your state govt Poultry Course, which will be free, and it’s an one week course. But course providers will have knowledge about theory, they lack practical knowledge.

Start with 2000 birds only. Don’t waste your hard earned money.

Get your water tested. (Suguna asks water testing report).

My Suggestion : do a business where in you CONTROL the things. Poultry business is all about LUCK. Your hard work will go waste…

Note: I have written the above matter out of my experience, it is not intended to point any company or an individual.
