Prices of Broiler Chicken Houses (prices may change due to steel price fluctuations)
Chicken house prices and chicken house costs depend on several factors - does the cost of broiler structure you have been quoted on include heaters etc? When you asked the supplier how much does a chicken house cost did you ask for shavings and day old chicks - or just the structure - with no concrete floor?

Should you require extras for you chicken house let us know and we will quote you separately. If you need a quote to secure a government loan or for your poultry business plan let us know. You will need to write a comprehensive plan for a government grant. You will need to take into account fans, cement slab, storage rooms for your feed (or a silo), If you can - visit a working chicken farm before you write your business plan - this will give you a very good idea of what is involved in setting up a chicken house or chicken farm. If you are a new poultry farmer it is advisable to start with less chickens in your flock rather than more - even if you set up a large chicken house it is advised to start with a smaller number of day olds until you get the hang of it. Small mistakes can cost you your flock - if your chickens get sick they can die in a day.
The price of chicken house can change if you want the extras - or if your land is on a slope, or if you have no electricity, water or accommodation for my men. The cost of chicken house is determined by thickness of steel we use - and steel prices do change. You will need to decide what size house you want based on the chicken house prices and how many birds you wish to farm with. Make sure you are choosing a structure that suits the type of farming you want to do - chicken house costs vary between layer houses and broiler house. There is also a difference between organic/free range and intensive farming structures. The cost of broiler house climbs as you need to add more birds - this is because the structure needs to be bigger and the amount of poultry equipment grows with the increase in bird numbers. Before you buy a structure make sure you have sufficient water volumes on your land - you will need about 0.75 litres of water per day per bird. Make sure you are not breaking any by laws or regulations and that you are actually allowed to farm chickens on your land. Most times if you are not in an area zoned for farming you will need to do an impact assessment study - this can be costly. You may also find your neighbors not that supportive of the idea that you will be farming with poultry next door to the. Think about security - fences etc. and make sure where you position your house you can access it with some kind of vehicle to clean the house afterwards, catch the broilers for transport when they are ready, and bring feed to the house without a long walk. You drainage patterns should also avoid a flood of water aimed at the structure - if you have bad drainage then you may have to raise the house or make channels. You house should be on a concrete slab - which remember, is not part of the quote. (as is the levelling of the ground in preparation for our installation team. We are happy to answer your questions - but remember we are not poultry farmers - we are suppliers, and you would do well to do some research, or even take a poultry course, before committing to an expensive project. Those of you whp are applying for government money - the same applies - while we are happy to help we cannot write your business plans for you.
