I wish I could get something smaller and portable. By portable, I mean something that I can easily carry about in case I relocate to my own apartment and also because of my job I just want to be doing it for the fun of it.

Go for the Cage system then. It can be easily dismantled and relocated.

The location is a new site and the breeze for here fit carry person even when the sun is high... The coach level has been put into consideration comparing the wind strength plus the plot is spacious enough. I believe as time goes on continuous upgrading will be done. Total cost for the borehole depends.. It was done for 200k this includes the pumping machine that went to the ground, the capacitor controller and pipe to the ground.. Although the extras I paid for was for transportation of water tankers cuz it's a new site and there's no water on the site . If there's a borehole around where ur location is Then you'll need to bargain with the owner to tap at a certain price and also you need a tank to store the water while the job is done.So prepare extra 30-40k to buy tank and water from another source which is going to be 32k for tank and 8k to buy water.borehole prices depends on location.. I already included tank to my budget if u chk. Today, there's another work going on by another owner it's an acres plus at the back and will be used for rearing cows. There's borehole work going on there now and water is being used from the poultry. Today we just made our first 10k from water supplies to the another plot . I feel like it's a 1m.. .. LOL.

Renting A government land for a project like poultry is very bad!.... government policy can change anytime, and they may decide to use the land for something else in future, then how do you move everything that has been constructed on the farm.... all constructed assets on the land will have to go for it!!!!.... if it is crop plantaion, then renting a land is the best and excellent thing to do cos if policy changes, ull just have to havest and move on..... but when you have to construct and put lots of asset on ground, then ill advice you to get a land you can call your own!

Bros I intend to follow you from now. I am hoping to start poultry business in June. I just acquired an acre in Sango-Ota. I have a partner in South Africa and we intend to do collaboration across those two spheres.

I have seen poultries with high mortality rates, so this guy's case is like 1 in a million to me

Depending on where you want to start from, construction of your farm or collecting of day olds or point of lay, which ever u can message me and I give u a quick reply.

Thanks for the comments.. I believe it only takes hard work to accomplish our aims. Financially E no easy ooo... But there has always been passion for this before venturing into it. Those planning to start small can cut down expenses some pple plan to start big as the size of the structure mentioned in the prev post. For Example : 20ft L can cut down to half while 70ft B can cut down to 30-35ft or of ur choice . This pen will take 1000 -1500 birds by my est. tho by the time of production I can give accurate capacity. We plan going into eggs productions only n laying off birds when due at least 500-700 bird for start. Storage house will be built far from the pen which should not cost a lot using zinc style building.. As freshers we plan to start with (POL) chicks I see the cost of feeding from day old may cost so much, immortality too. As time goes on with more experience we can go into day old . Location is Atan Ota . I advice u plan before venturing into any biz as I see poultry farming as a continuous project. It requires ur time ..
is it ok if i pay you a visit? kindly send your contact to me thru PM please.
thanks

I think you did a good job but there are several mistakes in your design which might hunt you in future. 1)There is not enough room for ventilation . (2) Use of zinc is not too good for poultry,Ammonia from poultry waste will make the zinc go bad in less than 5 years.
there nothing wrong with using zinc for poultry farm roofing.

How many birds will it contain
20ft * 70ft = 1400sq ft / 1.5 sq ft per mature 20wk old layer = 933 birds. drinkers and feeders are already factored into d building floor area.

price of materials is cost for now.. I advice you check price of things yourself.. it will save you a lot plus the workmanship is high ... normal I pay per day if you hire dem on a contract the cost will be at the range he stated ... calc how many workers on the field per day ... the price range around Abk is 5k daily n will take 5days to 7days to complete. 3 days for 6 capentars at 30k and 4 days for 5 brick layers @ 5k .. check with price of workers around your area .. price may vary ..
