First things first, I think 5000 layers is far too much to start with. In poultry farming, it's always advisable to start small and then subsequently consider scaling up after you must have gotten a hang of it. For now just forget about the revenue you believe you'll make from 5000 layers and concentrate more on learning everything it takes to be a poultry farmer.

Before going into any farming venture, the first thing to do is to make sure you can sell whatever you intend to produce. There's really no point producing anything in commercial quantities if you can't sell your products. So you have to plan exactly how you are going to sell your eggs and other by products even before you start your poultry farm.

After concluding your market survey, the next thing would be to get trained on the poultry business itself. Ask questions, visit poultry farms near you, attach yourself to a mentor, read books on poultry farming, etc, etc. Learn as much as you can before committing your resources.

When you think you've learnt enough, you can then proceed to start your farm with a small number of birds initially, and then after gaining the required knowhow from experience you can then decide if its best for you to scale up or not.
