Areas of Work

There are three major types of poultry farms, each catering to a different market segment. These are:

BREEDING FARMS

Which hatch and raise poultry for sale to other farmers.

BROILER FARMS

Which breed or buy chicks for their meat Day-old chicks are procured and kept for six weeks, until

they are ready to be marketed. In broiler farming, the initial investment required is lower, and the returns quicker However, it must be said that the job of looking after tiny chicks is extremely laborious.

LAYER FARMS

Which raise day-old chicks of light breed for five or six months, after which they start laying. They are kept for their eggs for a year, after which they are culled Although the initial investment is higher than in broiler farming, and the returns slower, there is less work involved the most difficult time being the eight-week breeding period.
