MORE ON POULTRY FARMING BUSINESS IN NIGERIA

Chicken, the king of the poultry business in Nigeria enjoyed dramatic growth in the last forty
years or so .the thousand of poultry producers in the country are proud of their industry,
which has become a multi billion Naira industry. The poultry industry has suffered some
setbacks of late due to the avian influenza, salmonellosis, and the incessant power outage in
the country which has taken a major chunk of its business opportunities. The industry has
continued to thrive and will continue to do so because the poultry business is here to stay.

Three factors have been primarily responsible for the remarkable development of the poultry
industry. The first factor has been the demands for eggs and poultry meat as articles of diet.
The second factor has been that poultry rising has been relatively profitable enterprise when
compared with most other agriculture enterprises. The final reason is the roles being played
by the poultry association of Nigerian umbrella body all poultry farmers in Nigerian. High
cost of inputs, power outages, diseases, low purchasing power of consumers are the major
hindrances to the rapid development of chicken industry. Chicken rising is a wide spread
enterprise engaging the attention of millions of Nigerians.

BROILER PRODUCTION In the Plan for your poultry business
Broilers are the most preferred ones under poultry meat category. Many Private companies
are involved with farmers in contract farming for boiler production. So marketing is no
longer a problem. A broiler is a young chicken of below eight weeks of age, weighing 1.5 to
2 kg body weight, with tender and soft meat.
SOURCING YOUR DAY OLD CHICK/LAYERS
All poultry birds hatched within the last 24hrs are referred to as day chicks, not minding
whether they are layers, broilers or cockerels.
It is the farmers who will make special request or order to the hatchery operator on the
category of bird he want to buy for rearing on his farm house. Layers are birds which are
reared for the sole purpose of egg laying. The brown and black eggers are dominant in our
own part of the world this resulting in large number of brown eggs in our market a good
reason for this is because the brown/black eggers are more-favorable.to the tropical climate in
our region that is, they are more adaptable to rearing condition found in our environment

GOING INTO POULTRY FARMING BUSINESS PLAN INVOLVES THE FOLLOWING
There are a few points you should bear in mind, before you start into poultry farming
business.
LOCATION – your poultry farm should be situated in a area which is not exposed to
extreme climatic conditions.
Especially during summers, where the temperatures soar & affect the profitability due to high
mortality rates. Your poultry should be situated away from other poultry farms preferably at a
radius of 3-5kms!
EQUIPMENT & LIVE STOCK – There are many Hatcheries which deliver day old chicks
to your farm. You will have to check the one which closest to your farm and which has a
proven ‘timely’ delivery record. This goes well with the feed companies too. You should opt
for the latest feeding, watering & lighting equipments which will save on your labour cost.
You should also tie up with a good vet.
You need Doctor who can visit your farm at regular intervals and who is easy approachable
during crisis. Keep a schedule for vaccinations and medication in consultation with a Vet.
PREPARING FOR ARRIVAL OF CHICKS
The poultry house should be cleaned and disinfected and allowed to rest for at least 7 days
prior to chicks’ placement. Also, equipment such as feeders, drinkers, brooders etc. should be
cleaned and disinfected. Fresh litter (straw, wood shavings etc.) should be spread over the up.
Wood shavings are the common litter used in Nigeria. Litter provides insulation from the
floor and will soak up moisture from the droppings. It also helps to prevent damage to the
birds’ legs due to slipping on slippery surfaces. The depth of the litter should be 8 to 10 cm.
Feed and clean water should be provided before chicks’ arrival. Feed may be placed in flat
surfaces such as egg flats or box lids to encourage chicks’ to feed. The producer should
introduce chicks’ to water by dipping their beaks in the water immediately they are placed on
the floor. Chicks’ may be encouraged to drink and feed by hanging bright 100 watt bulb 1 m
above litter level. Furthermore, poults may be encouraged to eat by placing feed in small
silver-coloured trays, and to drink by placing coloured marbles in the drinkers. The heat
source should be on 24 hours before the arrival of poults.

Poultry Farming Business Plan In Nigeria

BROODING
The term brooding refers to the period of the chicks’ life extending from one day- old to
about 3weeks of age. Chicks’ are usually placed in brooder rings for the first 5 to 6 days.
From 7 days to 3weeks, they are given from 0.9 to 1.4 m2 (1 to 1.5 square feet) of floor space
per bird. During this time, the chicks’ needs supplemental heat, special starter feed, and
protection from exposure to disease. One way of reducing disease exposure is separately
locating the brooding phase from growing and reproductive phases.
Chicks’
in correct spot brooding conditions
Approximately 100 square feet – 10 x 10 feet is required for raising a small group of 10-12 day
old chicks’. Pens should be planned in such a way that provision is made for enough space for
their growth
Key Points
Temperature is critical and should be maintained as recommended.
Temperatures should be checked manually at chick level.
Poults behaviour should be observed closely and frequently.

Poultry Farming Business Plan In Nigeria
6
SOURCES OF HEAT
In Nigeria, the main sources of supplemental heat to poults are cooking stoves, coal stove that
uses coal and to lesser extent paraffin stoves. Brooder stoves provide chicks with
supplemental heat from time of placement until they are relocated to growing facilities. The
stove is suspended from the roof and can be raised or lowered as needed.
BROODER GUARDS/RINGS
In the early stages of brooding, it is ideal to confine newly hatched chicks to a smaller space
to keep chicks close to brooder stoves for heat, feed and water for the first 5 to 7 days of age
or longer in colder weather. Brooder guards usually consist of a 30 to 45 cm wide strip of
hard board which has been cut to an appropriate length in order to form a ring 2.4 to 3.6 m in
diameter. It is set up in the pen where the chicks are placed, and is removed once they are a
few days old and are starting to jump out. The size of the guards is increased as chicks get
older to give them enough room to move about or to move away from brooder as temperature
gets higher than they can tolerate.
Guards/Rings
7
BROODER STOVE ARRANGEMENT AND TEMPERATURE
Usually, each brooder has 3 drinkers and at least 3 feeders. As mentioned earlier, to
encourage day-old poults (DOP) to start eating and drinking, 3 to 5 clean egg flats or some
news papers may be placed around each brooder with feed sprinkled on each one. Drinkers
are placed next to the feeders. Depending on the season, brooders should be adjusted in such
a way that it provides a comfortable environment for the poults. The height of the brooder
stoves may need to be increased slightly each day after 2 days of age. Brooders in curtain
type buildings do not have to be raised often, but need to be adjusted to keep poults from
roosting on them and burning their foot pads. The temperature for DOPs should be around 35
°C, as DOPs need plenty of heat. This temperature should be reduced by 1 °C every 3 days
until a temperature of 21 °C is reached. Temperatures are used only as guides because the
best way to adjust the temperature for the comfort of the poults is to observe their behaviour
if poults crowd near the heat source and chirp loudly, the temperature is too low. If they
move well away from the heat source and start panting, they are too hot. Ideally they should
be fairly quiet and spread evenly under and around the heat source.

8
LIGHTING
Constant lighting at a fairly high intensity (20-50 lux) is required to aid chicks in getting used
to their new environment as well as to find the water and feed. Light intensity is lowered to 5
lux after about 5-7 days. At this light intensity it is nearly impossible to read a news paper in
the shelter. The lower light intensity helps to minimize cannibalism. After 3-7 days, lighting
programs that reduce the number of hours of light a day during the growing period can be
used to reduce the incidence of various metabolic diseases and lame birds when raising
broilers or turkeys. Reducing day length to 8-12 hours per day, even having lights on only
during natural daylight hours should help reduce the number of lame and diseased birds. If
continuous light is used, an hour of darkness should be provided daily to prevent crowding
and piling up in corners (causing suffocation) when a power failure occurs.

Poultry Farming Business Plan/Feasibility Study In Nigeria

FORCE FEEDING
Chicks are not the best starters in their life and will really need some tender loving care to get
them safely through the first four weeks of life. The average mortality rate is 6-10% during
this period. Young chicks by nature are reluctant to eat and drink in the first few days of life,
primarily because of bad eyesight and nervousness. Hence, they have to be force fed. Starve
out problem is one of the major factors for early mortality in chicks.
So special care has to be taken for supplying feed and water. In force feeding, milk should be
fed at the rate of 100ml per liter of water and one boiled egg have to be given at the rate of
one per 10 chicks up to fifteen days and that will compensate the protein and energy
requirements of the chicks. Chicks can be attracted to the feed by gentle tapping of the
container with the fingers. Colored marbles or pebbles placed in feeders and waterers will
also attract chicks towards them.
FEED FORM AND PHYSICAL FEED QUALITY for your Poultry Farming Business Plan In Nigeria
Broiler growth and efficiency of feed use will generally be better if the Starter feed is crumbs
and the Grower and Finisher feeds are mash. It may be necessary to deliver the first delivery
of Grower feed as mash. Poor quality crumbs and mash will reduce feed intake and
performance. On the farm
Grower Feeds
Broiler Grower feed is generally fed for 14 to 16 days following the Starter. During this time
broiler growth continues to be dynamic. It therefore needs to be supported by adequate
nutrient intake. For optimum feed intake, growth and FCR, provision of the correct diet
nutrient density (especially energy and amino acids) is critical.
Finisher Feeds
Broiler Finisher feeds account for the major volume and cost of feeding a broiler. It is
therefore important that feeds are designed to maximize financial return for the type of
products being produced. Finisher feeds should be given from 25 days until processing. Birds
slaughtered later than 42–43 days of age should be given a second Finisher feed specification
from 42 days onward.

10
The use of either one or more broiler Finisher feeds will depend on:
Desired slaughter weight
Length of the production period
Design of the feeding program
Withdrawal periods for drugs will dictate the use of a special Withdrawal Finisher feed. A
Withdrawal feed should be fed for sufficient time prior to slaughter to eliminate the risk of
pharmaceutical product residues in the meat. Statutory withdrawal periods for prescribed
medicines that are specified in product data sheets must be followed. It is not recommended
that extreme dietary nutrient reductions be made during the withdrawal period.
However if feeding a mash feed, feed particles should be sufficiently coarse and uniform in
size. Mash feeds may benefit from the inclusion of some fat in the formulation to reduce
dustiness and improve homogeneity of feed components.

KEYS TO SUCCESSFUL BROODING AND REARING
Ventilation – Pheasants require fresh air to grow properly. Venting the brooder house to
maintain a room temperature between 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit will ensure a good growing
environment for the chicks. Intakes and outlets should be constructed with ducts which
permit good air flow and good air circulation but exclude light. Wall fans, if used, may be
thermostatically controlled so that they will vent air when the room temperature rises too
high. Generally, the chicks need more ventilation as they grow.
Temperature – Initially, young chicks are subject to “escape panic” and must be taught to
stay close to the brooder. It is necessary, therefore, to encircle the brooder with a guard 16 to
18 inches high. The guard can be corrugated cardboard, metal flashing or any other rigid
material. On day one it should be placed close enough to the brooder so that the chicks can
move from the heated area to a cooler area if they desire. Each day thereafter the guard may
be expanded to allow the chicks to roam over a wider area. On the sixth day, the guard is
removed and the chicks allowed to roam over the entire floor area of the pen. If the chicks
tend to crowd into the corners after the guard is removed, litter should be piled-up in such a
way as to round off the corner. This practice will prevent crowding and smothering. The
brooding temperature during the first week should be around 100 degrees Fahrenheit at floor
level near the centre of the brooder. The brooder should be turned on and the temperature
stabilized at least 24 hours before the chicks arrive. Watch the chicks closely, especially for
the first day or so. The height of infrared heat lamps should be adjusted so that the chicks will
lie in a doughnut-like pattern around the centre of the heated area. If they huddle together in a
tight group temperatures should be increased a few degrees. If the chicks move out and are
using only the very fringe of the area, reduce the temperature a few degrees. Increasing or
decreasing temperatures is accomplished by raising or lowering the heat lamp. Decrease
brooding temperature by five degrees at the end of the first week and again at the end of each
subsequent week until the temperature has reached 85 degrees Fahrenheit. Heat can be
discontinued after the birds are four weeks old.
Water – Water is the most important requirement of young pheasants. Cool, clean water
should be available at all times. Replace the water in your fountains twice daily and clean the
units to help prevent disease. Begin by using at least one quart jar fountain per 50 chicks.
Poultry Farming Business Plan In Nigeria
12
Place the fountain on a piece of hardware cloth to help keep the wood shavings out of the
water. Coloured marbles or stones may be added to the water dish to prevent drowning.
Stones may be removed from the water dishes after the fifth day. Place water fountains near
the brooder but not directly under the heat. As the chicks grow and drink more water, replace
the quart fountains with one or five gallon fountains. Provide three one gallon fountains per
100 birds. If you are monitoring the chicks twice daily you will be able to see how much
water the chicks are drinking at each visit. If the water fountains are empty at either of your
visits, add an additional water fountain. After two weeks of age, 200 growing pheasants will
require about 5 gallons of water per day.
Feed – The feed given to chicks is extremely important. Chicken feed is not acceptable. The
starting ration must contain 28 to 30 percent protein to meet the needs of the chicks for rapid
growth and good feathering. Crumbles are satisfactory, but pheasant chicks cannot swallow
pellets until they are three weeks of age. The starter feed should contain a coccidiostat, a
medication to protect the chicks from the disease coccidiosis while in the brooder house. At
nine weeks old in the outdoor pens, the pheasants can begin eating grower feed in the form of
pellets. Feed scratch grain the entire two weeks prior to releasing any pheasants. Scratch
grain is cheaper than grower pellets and grains or seeds are likely to be found near release
sites. Changes in diets and feed size occur gradually over a one week period by mixing the
different diets or different size feeds together. Within first 2 days of arrival, your chicks do
not eat much, instead provide constant water spread small amount feed in feed tray for them.
Give your chicks intra-ocular vaccine (1/0) within first 3day of arrival some farmers argue
that their bird have already inoculated from hatchery.
Note: that you can’t be so sure hence prevention is far better than cure. If you are rearing a
large number of chicks you need to sort out some members of your flock that are smaller in
size/weight compared with the general number of birds. Do this to prevent these birds from
becoming runt or stunted in growth, selected birds are separated from the rest flock and
allowed to feed and grow at their own However if you feed entire flock adequately, you may
not need to do any form of sorting since they will grow to fairly same size with very few
exceptions

Project Brief for Broiler Farm business plan

The broiler farm is a project of livestock sector, in which, the day old chicks (DOCs) are raised on high protein feed for a period of six weeks. This business can be started both in rural and semi-urban areas in sheds. These sheds have all the required facilities for the broiler farm.

The broiler birds are sold to traders and the whole sellers markets in the urban areas. Sometimes birds can also be sold directly to the shopkeepers in the urban markets. Broiler farming is a profitable venture depending on the demand of the meat in the market. Annually, six flocks of birds will be raised on the same premises of a farm.

Opportunity Rationale

Broiler meat is the cheapest source of animal protein available in the country. The time required for raising broiler birds is lesser than that for big animals. The consumption of white meat is increasing due to growing health consciousness in the masses.

Total Project Cost

A broiler farm with a population of 10,000 birds established building sheds needs a capital investment of about N12, 000, 000 for construction. In addition to this, a sum of N5, 030, 000 is required as working capital, which will be used for purchasing day old chicks and raw material (feed & vaccines) etc.

Deep Litter House Floor Accommodation

The birds are transferred to the deep litter house after 20 weeks in the growers’ house. In case of broiler production, this is where the birds will domiciled until they reach the market weight of about 1.6kg in 55days.

MARKETING

K

The marketing of chickens follows the traditional channels of distribution. Generally, broilers are distributed in the market through middlemen/women and wholesalers. Their role is to identify a farm and negotiate the price. In some cases, the middleman provides Day Old Chicks and other farm inputs (feed, etc.) to the broiler farmers and then agrees to buy back the mature birds from them. Birds are transported to the urban market and are sold to retailers or market-street poultry shops. Birds are sold on live-weight basis. The time spent in getting broilers from the farm to the retail shop is brief. Although collection and handling of birds has improved with the use of loader vehicles, but it is an established fact that greater the distance between the poultry producer and consumer, more complicated is the marketing system including their collection, handling and transportation to the consumer or processing plants. The processing plant produces dressed chicken (slaughtered and cleaned). However, a very small amount of dressed chicken is available in the local retail market. The integrated processing units distribute frozen and dressed chicken packed in whole or cut-ups to the consumer through retail shops under their brand names. The trick in marketing is quick availability of market information of chicken supply and demand, which will determine the selling price.

PROPOSED MARKETING STRATEGIES

The proposed integrated farm will strive to produce highest possible quality of the various products. The proposed farm will explore the following strategies:

1. SUPPLY TO MAJOR HOTELS, RESTAURANTS AND CATERING OUTLETS

There are many tourist initiatives and developments in the cities that need to be catered for. Unfortunately, at the moment, they are under – serviced and still depend on the traditional distribution channels. The proposed farm will aim at meeting the needs of the outlets, and subsequently other parts of the country.

2. SUPPLY TO HAWKERS

Live chickens or egg will be sold registered to hawkers on a regular basis. As most retailers have transport problems, the farm could entice them by delivering the chickens or eggs at their outlets

CONTRACTING

The farm may enter into a contract with medium or large-scale broiler users to supply stipulated number at specified periods. This will, hopefully, provide a steady market for the farm.

Project Brief for Layers farm business plan

Project Background

The livestock sub-sector is an important component of the Nigerian Agricultural Economy. Its importance derives from the fact that it is one of the key contributors to the national economy. For example, using the 1984 factor based data, the sub-sector contributed on an annual basis, a little over 5% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) between 1996 and year 2000. According to CBN, the livestock sub-sector is second only to the crop sub-sector under the sub-sector contribution to the general agricultural sector, and represents an average over 13% of agriculture’s contribution during the period under consideration.

In terms of specific output, the livestock sub-sector can be broken into product sub-groups such as, poultry meat, goat meat, lamb/mutton, beef, pork, milk and eggs.

.

Objective of feasibility Study

The objective of this study is to undertake a detailed investigation of the technical, market, and financial feasibility of the project, bearing in mind the size of the target market (potential customers), the existing competition, project location, investment costs and financial returns of the project.

Total Project Cost

A layer farm with a population of 10,000 birds established building sheds needs a capital investment of about N14, 790, 000 for construction. In addition to this, a sum of N21, 610, 000 is required as working capital, which will be used for purchasing day old chicks/point of lay and raw material (feed & vaccines)N300,000 etc.

Proposed Capacity

In this feasibility study, all the calculations have been based on a flock size of 10,000 birds, with raising six flocks per year. There will be a lag time of two weeks for cleaning and fumigation of the farm.

MARKET ANALYSIS

Overview

Nigeria, with a population of about 130 million is grossly underprovided with the essential food component, which is protein. For example, data from the FOS, CBN, and FAO indicate that from cattle, less than 2kg of beef is available to an average Nigerian per year and just mere 4kg of eggs per annum is available to each Nigerian. In fact, milk production has been nose diving or at best has remained constant since 1994.This scenario is compounded more so when the volume of egg supply is very low, being 10.56g per person per day as compared with the usual recommendation that an egg should be consumed by an adult per day. This recommendation would imply a crate of 30 eggs per month. This story also holds for other meat products including, chicken.

To ameliorate this problem of low-level of protein intake, there is the need for concerted effort, among the various stakeholders to bring about the massive production of protein based food items at competitive costs so that they would be affordable to the general masses. Aside from the other necessary economic reforms, massive investment poultry farming is one way of resolving the problem.

What is poultry farming?

Poultry farming is the commercial production of poultry birds, which include chicken, turkey, geese, pigeon, guinea and game birds. They are easy to produce, and have a high meat to carcass ratio. Hence, they are excellent products for meeting the protein needs of the populace.

Chicken constitutes about 90% of the poultry population in Nigeria. Consequently, poultry farming is generically used to refer to chicken farming in the country.

Poultry Products

The main products of the proposed project include eggs, day-old chicks and poultry meat, which will be generated from, culled birds (i.e. layers and breeders), and broilers. Poultry by-products such as poultry droppings, poultry offal and hatchery wastes will also provide additional income to the project. Poultry dropping can be used as manure for vegetable gardening and feed ingredient in fish farming.

Indeed, a wheelbarrow of fresh poultry droppings costs between N50.00 – N80.00 in some parts of Lagos State at the moment. Poultry offal and other hatchery wastes when grounded are good supply of calcium for growing birds.

Hence, they can also be sold in their re-cycled forms. In brief, the proposed products of the projects will include:

Main Products

Farm Eggs

Poultry Meat

From Culled birds (Layers and Breeders)

Broilers

By-products

CONSUMERS OF POULTRY PRODUCTS

Generally, there are few taboos, religious or cultural practices that prohibit the use of poultry products in human diet. Hence, nearly all members of the Nigerian populace are potential consumers of poultry products.

Specifically, there is sustained high demand for live birds for home consumption or as gifts at the time of festivals such as Christmas, New Year, Easter, Id El-Fitri, Id-El Kabir etc. Also fast food operators such as hotels, restaurants, and supermarkets also have very high demand for poultry products.

Egg, in its own case, has a wide variety of utilization. Thus, it is used in the preparation of products such as chicken burger, scotch eggs, salad, and egg soup among others. Apart from home consumption, eggs can be used as leavening agent in baked foods, and as an ingredient in the manufacture of hair shampoo and for the production of egg powder that can later be incorporated into baby food.

Poultry farmers, especially the ones specializing in broiler and layer production, are the potential consumer’s of the day-old chicks produced by the hatchery section. Point of lay for egg production involves the raising of the pullet chicks from 0 – 18 weeks. Such chicks must be obtained from reputable hatcheries.

Nigeria’s Poultry Market

While some countries are reputed to be important exporters of poultry products after consistently meeting local demand, Nigeria’s main problem is meeting its local demand for poultry products. Nigeria’s poultry market problems started in 1984 when the Federal Government banned importation of maize. This indeed contributed to steadily declining poultry production in addition to the effects of the structural adjustment program.

But the Nigerian poultry market had seen more prosperous times for the two decades after independence in 1960; poultry production grew substantially, peaking in 1982, with 40 million commercially reared birds. Since then, the bird population has dipped steadily, to an estimated low of 6 million in 1997. The new political dispensation has brought about a little improvement to poultry farming. Hence, the poultry population increased to 20 million in 2003.
