Poultry farming is defined as ‘raising different types of domestic birds commercially for the purpose of meat, eggs and feather production’. The most common and widely raised poultry birds are chicken. Around 5000 million chickens are being raised every year as a source of food (both meat and eggs of chicken). The chickens raised for eggs are called as layer chicken, and the chickens which are raised for their meat production are called broiler chickens.
Many people from economically lower strata can use the chicken farming for their livelihood. There is a special video which teaches how chicken farming may be done in the backyard of the dwellings. Commercial poultry farming is also a very profitable business.
