Broiler Farming Project Report 1000bird



The broiler chicken production of our country is growing at the rate of nearly 8-10% every year. The consumption of chicken meat has increased significantly during past two decades. Government is promoting this industry by providing subsidy. India is the  third largest broiler-chicken producer in the world produces 3.8 million tones of poultry meat a year. The market is estimated to be worth about Rs 90,000 crore. Per capita chicken consumption in India has been on the rise, with changing eating habits. Considering the vast potential of this industry in employment generation we have included many poultry project reports in this site..Before starting a Hybrid Broiler farm the entrepreneurs/ farmers are advised to under go   training on poultry  farming. They can contact Local Animal Husbandry Department staffs/Veterinary College/agriculture university etc. for the purpose.  They should also visit progressive broiler  farmers and government/ agricultural university poultry  farm in the locality. They must check the following points before starting a Broiler  farm.

  1. Availability of hybrid broiler chicks in local  market
  2. Nearness of the Farm to Veterinary Hospital, Animal disease diagnostic laboratory
  3. Marketing facility & demand of Broiler in local market
  4. Availability of broiler feed & medicine in their locality.

Back ended capital subsidy is available for  this project subject to a ceiling of Rs 56,000/- for a unit of 1000 birds ( Rs 74,600/- for SC/ST/BPL farmers and NEStates including Sikkim and in difficult areas  under  GOI scheme Poultry Venture Capital Fund (PVCF-EDEG)

This project report has been worked out subject to the following conditions:

  1. Hybrid Broiler Chicks will be purchased from commercial hatcheries for every batch.
  1. Sale price of finisher birds will change in accordance with change in purchase price of feed & chick .

3.Bio-security measures must be strictly  adopted.

4.The farm must be managed by the entrepreneur on scientific lines.

6- Cost of labour has not been taken into consideration since full time labour is not required for the small unit. Family labour will be utilized for maintance of the  farm

Floor – One square feet floor space per bird  is required for broiler chicken. The floor of the poultry house should be concrete cemented, strong & rodent proof ,and have slope towards door. Plinth should be 2ft. higher than ground.

Walls-lengthwise wall may be only one foot high, brick wall on sides,4ft wire netting above brick wall should be supported with angle iron. End wall of poultry house should be made of bricks. Maximum breadth of poultry house should be 27 feet. There should be partition in every 500 squire feet.

Roof – Roof of the poultry house may be of asbestos or tile. It should  12-ft. high at the center and 6-8ft. high on the side wall with 3ft extension of roof  beyond wall   to prevent rain water from entering poultry house.

This project report has been worked out subject to the following conditions:

  1. The chicks will have to be arranged from commercial hatcheries and price fluctuation in them be correspondingly accommodated in the final sale price.
  2. Any increase in the cost of feed shall correlate to the corresponding increase in the sale price of broilers.

3.As a bio-security measure against avian influenza all in all out system will be adopted.

  1. The scheme is a broad guideline and is likely to vary as per the change in price/cost of various specified items.
  2. The scheme is workable on the above guidelines if run by the entrepreneur on scientific lines.

Housing for broiler chicken

Floor –Pucca, smooth strong concrete cemented, impervious to moisture rodent proof ,and have slope towards door. Plinth should be 2ft. higher than ground.

 Walls-2ft. high lengthwise brick wall on sides,4ft wire netting above brick wall supported with angle iron. End wall should be solid made of bricks.

Doors –There should be two doors 4ft. wide and 6ft high opposite to each other.

Roof – 12-14ft. high at the center and 6ft. high on the side wall with 3ft. hang over beyond wall to prevent rain water from entering poultry house and to keep litter dry. Roof should be of asbestos, cement asbestos, or tile.
