First of all , i am shocked to find , how easily people are giving answer of this question. This question must be answered in Detail and in easiest way.
There are many segments in poultry and can be categorized in many sub segments.

Profit-In Contract farming – Rough Idea
You will be paid 6-7 rupees per kg. Example if you do contract farming of 10,000 bird and bird weight average 2.5 kg than total weight around or less than 25000 Kg multiply by 6.
Mean Around or less than input will be Around Rs 150,000 and 5 cycles in a year, you can expect from contract farming. Yearly Output around 7,50,000.
But it requires your own farm and your own electricity( You will have to pay electricity bill and brooding cost will also suffered by you, after bird’s lifting litter(Finally the converted manure) is yours and you can sell it it can easily cover your brooding cost in summer. In winter brooding cost is extra.Contract Farming is Always in profit either less or more because some parameters are there depending on your management and others.( It is mandatory farm must be your or belong to you.
Every company has its different rules and policies. So never be in hurry to sign the agreement.
Self Broiler Farming-Chicks Price keep change day by day may vary from Rs. 7 to Rs- 60 as per demand. Feed Price are getting high around Rs.28-Rs. 30
3.5 Kg Feed is require for around 2 kg bird. If every thing is fine. Mean if your bird’s are safe from any viral,bacterial and other natural disaster.Additional costing of brooding,electricity,vaccination and management etc. So Costing of broiler chicken birds is different for every different batch and when you sell the birds market is also different in every batches.which may vary from Rs. 45 to 120 per kg .No prediction of selling price. It keep changing in different areas and you can’t hold the bird for a long time to wait for increase in Price of chicken.
( It is very risky because small scale Poultry Farmers depend on others for feed ,chicks and for more.Which increases the cost for small scale farming.
