How to Start Backyard Chickens Business

You can start your poultry farming with backyard chickens

Do you know that you don’t need a large expanse of land to start raising backyard chickens? If you have free space at your backyard, you can start your poultry farming from there. Chickens are good sources of protein whether you eat it as meat or you eat the eggs. Unfortunately, the local production of chickens in our country is so low that we need to depend heavily on imported frozen chickens. Government has tried to correct our dependency on imported frozen chickens by placing embargo on them. However, we don’t have enough local farmers who are into poultry farming. This makes such policy ineffective. This is a good business idea and opportunity for anyone that wants to go into poultry farming knowing fully that the market for chickens is very large. Most people prefer fresh chickens to frozen ones. There was a time I stopped taking frozen chickens completely. I believe that it is not only me that has distaste for frozen chickens. The main challenge is that locally grown chickens are not as freely available in the market as frozen chickens.

Although, poultry farming can be capital intensive, you don’t need to start it in a large scale.  You can start your own poultry business in small scale with very little investment by raising backyard chickens.  This is one of the small business ideas that do not require any special certification. It is a good home business idea for moms and dads. If you are interested in starting a backyard chickens business, there are steps you need to take. These are enumerated below:

Comply with laws

Every state and country has their own laws. You need to find out if the laws governing your area allow backyard chickens business. You might have free space at your backyard. That does not mean you can start a backyard chickens business there. In any business, compliance with laws is very important. Otherwise, you will be exposing yourself to legal suits. If your area is zoned for backyard chickens, then you need to obtain permits from the local authority. In most cases, permits do not cost much. But if you fail to obtain them, the fines and penalties involved can cripple your backyard chickens business.

Define your objective

Ask yourself the reasons you want to start a backyard chickens business.  Do you want to start the business in order to earn extra income? This means that you will be operating the business as a side business. On the other hand, if the backyard chickens will be your main source of income, you will need to devote a lot of your time to the business. However, the space you have available for raising the backyard chickens will determine how large the business can be.
