Q&A: Can I use my (old) chicken farm building?
The initial answer would be yes. There are plenty of examples where a business plan shows an existing older chicken farm building. The advantage of an existing building is that you have a lower investment, if of course you already own the building. Another advantage what you might not directly think of is you could save time by getting a building permit. Because you build inside an existing building. This advantage is not purely for a chicken farm building but any warehouse or other type of building where you build your BSF farm on the inside.
The advantage of building from scratch is that you’re sure you can create the ideal setup for your new BSF farm.
In all cases it’s important that you consult with your BSF equipment supplier to find out what works and where the limitations are.
