One of the most common causes of lost profits and failure in poultry keeping is the lack of planning and foresight. A good poultryman is alert and wide awake; he is a person who spends a lot of time with small details-one who can watch his birds and sense when they start to get sick or go out of condition. He is a person who plans ahead and is prepared for the different phases of poultry management as the birds grow and mature.
