Note- Try to make balance, don’t purchase so cheap land in such a remote area where Transportation costs & daily up down time make your life hell.
Tip-2– Land near villages is always better than Cities’land for poultry farms and must be away from the population.
Many times Poultry farms produce smell and also can cause excess issues of flies. Huge gases Like Ammonia make it very tough to tolerate for the common person.

The road/way towards your poultry farm should be reachable easily in every season.
Poultry Birds can’t afford a single day without feed & proper management.
Be sure the transportation of Poultry Feed & must be done easily. Remember if you are not able to receive poultry feed timely, birds either broilers or egg laying birds can’t tolerate hunger even for a day & huge Mortality may be done.

Tip 5– Poultry Farmers having their own Poultry farm remain in more profit instead of rental Poultry Farms. Because of the mentality of Poultry Farmers who run poultry farms on rental basis ignore the market scenario and always remain in hurry in replacing chicks even after costly chicks and costly feed. This Cost of production increases resulting in huge loss, if the Broiler market is not so good.
Tip 6 – Ensure the water quality & Water must be easily available every time.It costs only a few money. Always Check TDS & PH of water where you are planning to set up Poultry Farm. TDS More Than 3000 not considered good for Poultry’s Birds.
Ph More than 7 is not good for Poultry Birds.
You can solve the above parameter but it costs extra. Because you have to setup R.O./Filter to adjust T.D.S. and have to add acidifies to balance PH.
These are minor issues and can be ignored.
Tip 7- Setting up a poultry farm needs sufficient funding. Don’t think you are just going to spend money only on poultry farm. You have to buy a lot of equipment such as feeders, drinkers, lighting system, heaters / brooders, and many more. Most importantly Poultry Feed and Chicks.
70-80 % of expenses is Feed Cost.
