Keeping chickens is one of the most popular business options for both rural and urban areas of Southern Africa. This guide shows the reader how to do it, demonstrating how a poultry business can be started with as little as 1000 Rand. It helps answer questions such as: How much money do I need to start? How small should I start? How do I know if chickens or eggs will sell in my area? Should I keep broilers (for meat) or layers (for eggs)? Is it easy to start with day-old chicks? How will I keep records? How much money can I expect to make? The methods in this book have been tested extensively with the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) who have established poultry businesses with many retrenched mineworkers in Southern Africa.
