BENEFITS AND DISADVANTAGES OF MODERN CHICKENS
They can be kept even in a small courtyard area, provided you keep clean eg 200 chickens in a 3 by 5/6 m shed
Properly cared for in accordance with the rules of their diet to the point of sale or breeding, very few die (<5 per 200 chicken coop)
They take a short time to sell the model of eggs will feed them 6 months they start laying eggs and broilers are a month and a half (6 or 7 weeks) depending on the weight you want. So if you trade meat broilers for two weeks at the end of each month you have a chicken to sell. And egg hens every day have eggs you sell up to 18 months you sell chickens themselves as well. This is a great advantage and can prevent you from needing your salary. The market for broilers and eggs is huge and predictable (prices are often determined from when you take the chicks)
Very tamed … maybe you miss the prescriptions for medicine and diet, but for the eggs to start laying is straightforward, also if you cut the lips the eggs are safe. If their houses are safe and no thieves come in it is not easy to get out and steal or lay eggs outside.
It requires capital: money for food and medicine without fail, if you miss their food or medicine on time you will incur great losses (they may die, become paralyzed, stagnant or not lay eggs), their food is also expensive if you do not mix it yourself, water must be waterguarded or boil especially in the first few weeks.
They need electricity or lighting so they can eat 24 hours (even charcoal is small if it is cold)
Their houses should be made of tin or brick to prevent ground moisture and the floor should be plastered, they need fresh air so the big windows can move air. Seal all holes in hawks, crows, and caterpillars by placing nets in the windows
If you do not follow the terms of the vaccine and medication you may endanger the health of the consumer as you will need to treat them for the last few weeks where you are selling them. Vitamins should also be reduced in the weeks to sell broilers.
They need cleanliness in the pavilion: wooden racks (saw dusts) are needed to prevent the faeces from bringing dirt and cold to the floor when they sleep. Change these rands every so often to prevent the spread of the flu.
It is a small expense to take care of them: their food is simple, they can also take care of themselves, their water also does not have to be safe water.
They do not need electricity or lights at night or in the winter for the chicks, perhaps you have bought the chicks and were not produced by the hens to cover them at night
Their simple houses may be of wood / wood or galvanized iron / brick depending on one’s ability
they are disease resistant, so they do not need to be treated regularly or given vitamins (only Newcastle or mumps vaccine is needed)
It is a healthy food that the eater can eat every day without fear of side effects of drugs or vitamins
They are like pets in a family because they grow slowly
