Chandrans Poultry farm was started in the year 1983 as a Partnership concern of four brothers: Balachandran, Ravichandran, Jeyachandran and Udyachandran. The family was previously engaged in plant breeding and commercial seed production under the name Krishna seeds. Long sales cycles and prevailing drought conditions forced the family to seek alternate avenues for growth and they decided to enter into poultry farming. Chandrans Poultry farm was started initially as a Contract Broiler breeder operation for Pioneer Hatcheries. By 1986, Pioneer hatcheries developed their own breeding facilities and vacated the farm. For a short period of time, Chandrans poultry farm operated as Commercial Broiler farm with a batch size of about 3000 birds. At that time, this was the largest commercial broiler farm in the state of Tamilnadu. By 1988, Chandrans Poultry farm shifted to Deep litter commercial layer farming. In the next couple of years, the deep litter facility was slowly converted to cage system of about 50,000 layer birds capacity.

In the next couple of years, the deep litter facility was slowly converted to cage system of about 50,000 layer birds capacity. In 1991, the brothers underwent a family partition and the eldest of the brothers, P.K.Balachandran, took over Chandrans Poultry farm and reconstituted the company as a partnership comprising of members from his nuclear family. P.K.Balachandran, an B.Sc Agriculture graduate, implemented many scientific management techniques in the farm to improve operational efficiency and profitability.
At the time of takeover, Chandrans Poultry farm had a capacity of about 50,000 commercial layers. It was purchasing feed from other feedmills. Very soon, Chandrans Poultry farm set up its own feedmill for captive consumption. By 1993, Chandrans poultry farm commenced work on its second unit and by 1995, it had reached a capacity of 2,40,000 commercial layers. In the year 2000, Hitech poultry farm was set up with a capacity of 1,50,000 commercial layers.
