But to make a wage from rearing if you base 20000 birds per man you'd make a decent living. Obviously the more you do the greater the profit.

Wise words jok, very wise.
You know when you go for an MOT and you pass but with advisories. Well mate I think an advisory is in order. This sounds like a huge failure. (Only in my opinion). Lack of knowledge and clearly not knowing the great unknown. For sure you will have a visit and all your budget plans etc will go to the wall. How do I know? The buggers did it to me in one night .All right not the numbers you are on about, but all the birds cleared in one night. Heartbreaking. Thing was, I never saw it coming,which, when I found out who it was even more levelling. Don't think all your enemies are where you can see them. Like I say, an opinion.
As an aside, I have to agree with most of the comments so far, Sussex is right about them been suicidal, I have seen them kill themselves in some very odd ways and it opened my eyes.
I fail to see why you would buy in chicks at a few weeks old (to avoid the heat lamp situation they will really need to be feathered) and bring them on for release in the hope you will make money, (that's a situation smaller keepers put themselves in to save money not make it) the money is in the hatching and full rearing for sale as poults, as that is where the risk is that's where you earn the money.
One man rearing the numbers you want can easily do it, IF he has not got a job or any other commitments as they need a lot of attention, hence those numbers are an in between, you either need just a few so part time, or a lot more to cover been full time.
The initial outlay will surprise you if buying new, and the time and effort required to setup..........
In summary, a strange setup he is planning, and the numbers don't stack up for profit making, perhaps 10'000 and sell the surplus to other shoots ?

If hes buying in poults ,they will be 7~8 weeks old and go straight to wood .If hes buying in days olds then outlay as said will only be recouped on a large scale .Dont know anywhere that sells birds mid term as no money in it .You need to get answers before investing mate as well as a good alarm system .
