Yeah that's it . So its a 8x4 metre shed so in our terms its a 24ft x 12ft rearing shed putting 6000 birds in. Same size as a Sedgemoor or Pukka pen shed. Never heard anyone putting 6000 birds in a Sedge moor or Pukka. So they've done there cost savings on this amount of birds going in a shed. If I tripled the amount of birds I put in a 8x8 or 12 x12 on paper i'd make massive saving. Truth of the matter i'd be bloody daft and have a lot more hassle then what its worth. Also you push em into a heated night shelter at 3 weeks so you can re-fill the shed . So the new chicks can't be let out into the night shelter until the older chicks having been taken to wood so they'll be at least 3 weeks of age before they've seen grass. That's if there is any grass because you've already run 6000 birds through the runs. Like I said on paper its looks fantastic and if you put 2000 chicks in like a sedgemoor or similar i'm sure they've would rear a great poult. But 6000 chicks come on there way out on there numbers. Or have I missed read something.

If they only hold 2000 birds they are definitely not worth the money. But if they hold 6000 as proposed and are able to be run through multiple times. In my eyes. They will be very profitable about saving sheds.
Says it holds 6000 in the first part then they are moved and the next 6000 go in if it's true and a bird can be raised for £1.40 I could right off the cost of a shed in the first year maybe I won't rush to the boss with that idea though

You could or game farming wise make I nice lot of money with the shed on drip. I costed it out at 1.55 per bird putting 18000 down and selling 16000. The md gave me the price of 1.41 I think it was.
Sounds good on paper. You can forget those percentages if you don't know what your doing. Its a long hard learning curve.
