Small scale Chicken Egg Farm Business

 From my previous post,we know some details about chicken farming for meat purpose.Now we are going to discuss about chicken egg farm business.Egg farming is one of the profitable section of poultry farming.Majority of people prefer Chicken Eggs than other poultry Eggs.Main Egg producers in India are from Maharashtra,Tamil Nadu and Kanataka states.Kerala is one of the main consumer of Eggs.As there is always a huge demand exists for Chicken Eggs,starting a Chicken farm for the production of Eggs will be a great idea.

India got 5th position in the production of Eggs.Nearly 4%of the total Global production of Eggs are from India.The market grows at an average of 7% annually. One interesting fact is that India got Lowest Egg production cost among all Egg producing countries.India has over 5000 years history in Egg production.From these datas,it is very clear that Indian farmers can successfully do Egg business and is a good opportunity for them.



While doing Egg farming,we need to maintain a clean environment in the farm.Eggs should be collected same day.Old birds should be replaced with new ones.Rest of the things are same as that of Meat farming.Regular feeding and cleaning are important.Drinking water should be clean and need to be available at all time.We can do either backyard farming or Intensive farming.

 Increasing chicken feed rate and maintenance rates are the main challenges in chicken farming.By preparing chicken feeds ourselves,we can avoid this headache.The increasing Egg rate is a good sign for farmers.To ensure maximum profit,they need to avoid retailers and should sell their product directly in market.This will help the end customer to get healthy eggs at cheap rate.So lets start a small chicken farm in our backyard and produce some eggs.

  6. Dear Joseph,

    Feel Very sorry to here your experience.There are good and bad personalities in every organization. Its not necessary that everyone are same.
    KVKs major objective is to help farmers/entrepreneurs by providing necessary knowledge about farming sector to nurture small scale businesses in the field of farming.Our government is spending Crores to KVK for such activities.
    Most of the poor farmers won't go for complaining when they get such bad experiences.Hence few are taking it as granted.

    Make sure you approached correct person/department for your query and send a detailed complaint to PMO(Prime Ministers Office).You can file complaint online also.I have attached the links.Our Prime minister is very keen on such issues.

    Pls makesure this won't happen to any other person from the same KVK.

    1. Hi Kewin,

      For an egg farm,for the first year the main cost will be infrastructure cost.If you start from scratch,you may have to spend around 30000 INR(Depends on your location and construction cost) for 100 birds including construction,equipments,labour,cost of birds,vaccination etc during first cycle.After that only recurring costs are applicable.The most unpredictable costs are feed cost and disease handling costs.you can expect 20-30% profit margin per cycle.All the best.
      You can refer NABARD PROJECT REPORTfor detailed analysis.
