Small scale commercial poultry operations are becoming more popular. Taking the time to do things right from the beginning will ensure you have success.  What species and breeds fit best for you?  What will you sell?  Eggs, broilers, turkeys?  What are the regulations you must follow?  And can you make money doing this?  This session will provide an overview of the opportunities for beginners in poultry.  Facilities, labor, feeding, processing, and marketing will be addressed.
