Idea and passion for work

Chicken farming is not a job like others. There has to be an internal desire first. Just because a friend or neighbor is involved in this job does not mean you enter or start. This thinking should be from within that this thing is my job. It’s just as basic as it is. Since chicken is a sensitive business, it is better to have a deep interest first.


Having a plan is the key. Poultry farming should be started with a plan not with permission. This should be based on how much capital I have, how much chicken I can rear, which type of poultry farming I will be successful in. Plan is like a road map. This means he shows his destination. Sales study is very important. They should know where they are selling it and to whom they are selling it.
