I had my fears before venturing into poultry farming. I wasn't sure about the number of birds to start with, and whether the space I had was sufficient. It took me a while to build that confidence.

Getting into any kind of farming is scary. Farming is risky.

In most cases, people avoid some farming options based on hearsay. I agree with @RichZ that farming being risky, yet a farmer should not fear taking risks. Before embarking on a venture, you need to do sufficient research.

The local extension office is the beginner's best bet. I remember spending a lot of time on online research, and I ended up with conflicting information. I think that new farmers fear failure, yet it is the best way to learn.

It is okay to have your doubts and go on to prove or disapprove of them through research. The other side of the coin involves getting into farming and being overambitious. Either way, a farmer should learn from all experiences.

Most beginners suffer from the fear of the unknown. Those who confront these fears and take risks may end up knowing whether or not their hesitations have a basis. A lot of successful farmers learned through making mistakes.

How are you doing now? I have always said that fear is a good thing. If you do your research and know exactly what you are getting into, things will go more smoothly. I hope it is going great so far.
