Learn Poultry Farming Business and be Financially Independent

Agriculture

In Nigeria, Poultry farming outputs are more expensive than most of other forms of meat because of the great health benefits of white meat. Many Doctors have recommended their patients to take more of white meat than red meat and this made starting a poultry farming a lucrative and formidable business to do in Nigeria with a population of more than 170 million.

I knew of a friend who just graduated from a government University and ventured into poultry farming in small scale production as he started with less money. He raised the chicken in their compound.  He has his good chicken feeds techniques and when the chicken grown old, he will kill and froze it. He prefers to sell it as frozen and makes more money every time. Soon after he started, he begins to make more profit and expand his business to the surprise of every one, he bought private car for himself, bought two plots of land, build a bigger poultry house with some few equipments, employ few staff and also a small vehicle for conveying his poultry products.  Now he is doing it in a bigger way and still has room for improvement. His story, resilience, determination and hard work made him a spotlight.

HOW TO START POULTRY FARMING BUSINESS IN NIGERIA

There are many poultry farm product one can start in Nigeria like snail chicken, turkey, duck etc but in this article, I will focus on Chicken poultry farming. Starting a chicken farming does not make you a farmer but more of a business person. In the chicken industry there are three main sectors:

  • LAYERS

This set of chickens are mainly raised to produce eggs and they starts laying eggs at the age of 11 weeks and within some time they will start laying eggs regularly and frequently. Layers lay more eggs in warmer season than in the cooler season so bringing on lights in your poultry facilities will make the temperature warm and suitable for them to lay eggs.

Chicken Layers

  • BROILERS

The set of Chickens are raised for meat production and they are suitable for consumption within the range of 6 weeks to 8 weeks of age. Though broilers have many breeds, I will recommend that if you want to buy your day old broiler always make sure that it is weighed above 36 grams. You have to provide them with much food as it will be converted to meat in their body system.

Chicken Broilers

  • COCKEREL

It is very strong chicken and varies with its colors. It is mainly raised for hatching of eggs to smaller chicken. They are resilient and withstand many forms of bad weathers.

THREE HOUSING METHODS OF RAISING A POULTRY FARM

1. BATTERY CAGE METHOD

This type of method is very common in Nigeria and other countries. It is made of metal cages and arranged in rows. It allows the excretion to drop down easily and very easy in collecting the eggs of the chicken. Food is provided in front of the chickens while water is set above the food.

2. THE DEEP LITTER SYSTEM

This one is also commonly used and widely accepted and involves raising up the chicken in floor which is covered with some material while some prefers to use Saw dust. It enables the chicken to exercise themselves and move around while they eat drink and lay eggs.

3. FURNISHED CAGE METHOD

This method is often used by some people who prefer to start their poultry farming in a very small scale type just like my friend started with. It involves constructing cage for the chickens which will house few chickens but with stages more chicks will fill up the area.

KEY THINGS TO NOTE IN HOUSING

  • Please make sure that there good ventilation in your poultry farm.
  • Make the place Clean to avoid any form of chicken disease of predator coming to eat chicken.
  • Concentrate in the temperature so that it will remain warm rather than too much cold or too much hot for the birds.
  • Make sure that there is enough space for the chickens tp walk around and don’t overcrowd your farm.

  • Mr. Beverage, I agree with your post. You make a clear distinction between personal and civil morality.. People need to accept reslinsibipoty for their own morality and leave collective group-attack out of the equation. Clearly labeling a business a ‘porn shop’ defines the tone of the rest of the conversation and very much alters the course of the rest of the debate.

  • Ze zijn zo mooi Annelies, in alle tinten blauw, en al 117 klaar, wow! Ja, ik geloof je als je zegt dat het lang kan duren eer je blauwe restjes op zijn, met zulke huisjes kan je heel veel kleine scraps gebruiken, en het slaat geen gat in je restjesbak.

  • Io avrei bisogno di una bambola gonfiabile: per quella non ci dovrebbero essere difficoltà sull’aereo, basta gonfiarla, fargli il biglietto, nessun problema al metal-detector, imbarcarla, farla sedere nella poltroncina ed allacciarle la cintura. All’arrivo è sufficiente sgonfiarla e mettersela in tasca. Ho speranze?

  • Ye have a left commo system. Whats the diff between the us and china well ye both have the star, ye both think the sun shines from ye arse! well the system does NOT the people. China has the commo system ye have the ZJEW one. NOT against Jews just the right wing ones!!!!!!!!!!!and ye have no system for ye people. Big gap in people standards man. Rich poor and slowly loosing the mid man..slowlyoutsourcing and fake share prices all bs

  • Trade seems to be a lagging indicator. Trade hit an all-time in 2008, after the recession started.Are you talking the World Trade line or the Exports line?US Exports typically move in coincidence to the US economy.It's not too surprising the World Trade series rose into early 2008: the recession started here then moved to the world. Now, the calls for recession are due to global weakness. Well, the trade line is not showing global weakness.Mark's bottom line still stands: there are no signs of recession in these indicators.

  • We haven’t had kids yet, but it will (hopefully) be soon enough. Like most couples that don’t really know what they are doing, my husband and I like to hypothesize what we would do in every imaginable senario and situation we will encounter. OK, really it’s mostly me asking “What if [fill in the blank] ?” while he watches TV. Close enough .It’s stories like this that serve as an example of how truly live out the idea of unconditional parental love and acceptance. So excited to hear more of your stories in the New Year.

  • It seems the majority of collisions I respond to as a firefighter are at lighted intersections. I believe most are caused by drivers racing or pushing the red light.I’m unconvinced that removing all lights would be a workable solution. Fewer lights would be nice. Perhaps someone will develop ‘smart lights’ that sense approaching traffic and pedestrians and are capable of making logical decisions.

  • I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

  • ow, my poor brains hurts too, but not from ideas, it suffers from dizziness and headackes and lots of..sorry..snot. A vintage swap, I don’t think it’s something for me, I don’t have anything vintage in the house, nor any inspiration.. But I love to see your creations!

  • "3. How much welfare errrrr i mean public assistance errrrr I mean bootstrap assistance are you receiving?"That's funny, negroes thinking that whites are more prone to welfare that negroes are. That brings up an essential point: what do you do with a whole race of people who are too dumb to know that they are dumber than everybody else? This is the Achilles heel of egalitarianism.We have taught the lie that negroes are not dumber, we've given the affirmative actions jobs to back up the lie… and now they believe it. It's a real tragedy.

  • Thank you for another great article. The place else may anybody get that type of info in such a perfect manner of writing? I’ve a presentation subsequent week, and I’m at the look for such info.

  • ,”Excuse me, but the once called Hg2 is actually haplogroup I, Hg1 is what best approaches R1b (Hg21 is too) and that is between 22 and 43%, but closer to the lowest figure in most regions.”Former “Hg2” does not refer specifically to haplogroup I-M170. It usually refers to haplogroup F(xJ, K), which means that these Armenian Hg2 Y-chromosomes might actually be a heterogeneous mixture of haplogroups G-M201, H-M69, and I-M170.

  • Kemisti: Olet oikeassa siinä, että lentäminen,alkoholi, tupakka jne. ovat isoja juttuja, mutta ne ovat valintoja, jotka ihmiset voivat tehdä TIETOISESTI.On väärin, että meille ei kerrota monista NÄKYMÄTTÖMISTÄ vaaroista, joita ruoassa, leluissa ja kosmetiikassa esiintyy. Niistä olen huolissani ja niistä haluan herättää keskustelua.

  • Muchas graicas, me alegro de que os haya gustado. Al final, ese es el único objetivo de este blog: que a la gente le guste y disfrute unos minutos conociendo cosas de nuestro planeta que no sabían que existían o recordando otras que hayan visitado. Seguiré escribiendo y lo seguiré haciendo sobre Asia. Tengo cierto material preparado que pronto verá la luz. Un saludo!

  • Soul/Pop music was moving from the ol’ blues format of 12-bars and AABA format into something more malleable. Motown had to evolve too. You can even hear the Psychedelic sounds creeping in songs like “Reflections.”You can’t sing simple tunes like “Where Did Our Love Go” and “Baby Love” forever and still remain relevant. The early ’60s were very different from the late ’60s.
