In this section you determine how many chickens will be produced for the year and the anticipated selling price. This information will be used to determine the total gross sales revenue for the year. Pasture raised poultry are typically produced in moveable cages with each cage holding one batch of birds.
Production expenses are divided into variable and fixed costs. The variable costs are those that are directly related to the number of chickens raised, such as the cost of the chicks and the feed they eat. Fixed costs are costs that you incur that are not directly related to the amount of production, such as liability insurance and equipment or buildings, which will last for multiple seasons.
