It's official, my family become addicted to chickens. So much so that my father is thinking about buying a small farm and wants to start a poultry farm. What are everyone's thoughts on that? Is it hard to do? He wants to apply for a small business loan. So my questions are... How hard is it to breed large amounts of chickens and care for 75 chickens? Is this a profitable business? About how much is it to start it up? is 2 acres enough. I have done some research, but I still need some more help so any suggestions would be welcome.
