    The gamebird farm I found and like has the facilities across the street from the house.
    Its a huge place with many huge pens and barns.

    Id hate to know what the startup costs are just to build the pens and any buildings.
    Then gotta get stock and be successful in producing more from that stock . . .

    Biosecurity is a MUST.
