Locating and purchasing a suitable farm that fits your family's needs is not necessarily a simple process. A farm has to be able to produce a positive cash flow to supply enough income for your individual family's financial situation. The amount of down payment you provide (usually 15 to 20 percent) directly influences the amount of cash flow on a farm.
Breeder Hen Farm
This poultry operation is primarily involved in hatching egg production. Generally, a farm will receive pullets (young hens) when the pullets are approximately 20 to 22 weeks old. These hens will remain on the farm and in egg production for approximately 43 to 46 continuous weeks, at the end of which, they will be picked up and taken to slaughter. The typical 'out time' is four to six weeks. Pay for breeder hens is generally on a 'per dozen eggs' basis, often with other bonuses possible.
This poultry operation produces young hens for the breeder hen operation. A farm will receive baby female chickens. These chickens are raised continuously for approximately 20 to 22 weeks, until then they are picked up and taken to a breeder hen farm. The farm will typically have "out-time" of 10 to 14 days for maintenance or cleanout. Pay on a pullet farm is usually done on a square foot basis.
Broiler Farm is a farm that is involved in the production of poultry for meat. Baby chickens are delivered to the farm at one day of age and are generally kept from 5 to 9 weeks. After this time the broilers are removed from the farm to harvest for meat. The "out time" is usually 10 to 14 days. Pay on broilers is on a pound of meat-produced basis and has many variances for the pay formula.
