Thank goodness I stumbled on this thread. I'm about starting too but the info someone gave with shakara is sooo much different from what I'm seeing here. My birds for don die.

Nyways, I have a room space which I intend using, I will be going to the market to trampoline for the roofing and net and 2by2 for the door. Please will this provide enough warmth cos I intend to start with a day old chick too. I'm looking at 50

Secondly, can anyone advice where to get a day old chick from around Mushin area? I'll be asking more questions later cos I wasn't even aware that their food n drugs change. First things first though......waiting for your advice

God bless our hustle

I wanted to use the tampoline for the roofing instead of zinc.....and the room already has walls around it. It's just the door n window that will need the net if I'm correct. I'll add the nylon to my list. Please reply

For the numbers, I was asked to wait that the sales manager will call me. I'll keep you posted

Does it mean it cost about 200 naira to feed and treat each bird for the period because a DOC costs about 200 naira?

Yea from September d price will jump then for ur broader just secure it well and d most common disease during rainy season is cosidious which is easily contained with embazyn forte and other anti cocci drugs do it regular antibiotics and lasota then no trouble till sales

Don't u give ur birds gumboro vaccine??
Re: Xmas Broiler Broading In Pictures by RichieAngels(m): 1:38am On Sep 16, 2015
Here's the list of vaccination programme I'm using for my birds that are 4wks old now. I got it from my veterinary doctor for those that might need help...

Day 1 ---------- glucose or vitamin
Day 7 ---------- 1st gumboro vaccine
Day 14 --------- 1st lasota vaccine
Day 21 --------- 2nd gumboro vaccine
Day 28(4 wks) ----- 2nd lasota vaccine
6 wks ------- Fowl pox vaccine


These are the most important vaccines for broilers. There are others but they are mostly for layers since they have a longer life span

Ur vaccine programme is good but first lasota is usually given before day 10 to help break any CRD or respiratory issue that may arise from hatchery or early broading adaptation issues

Yes lasota and gomboro vaccines are given twice before day 29 but after that u repeat lasota on broilers usually every 4wks to checkmate viral disease , new castle infection

Well spoken but it can only be achieved where u have standard farm with lightening for 24hrs else birds cannot feed without light
So its better u practise what is practicable within ur reach and avoid theories of non practising farmers

Sorry for my late response to ur question u can actually raise d birds to 4wks but after 4wks u must move them , then d 19 by 26ft room cannot accomadate 200 matured broilers except they are not well feed
So option a is use d 2 rooms after 4wks of broading then sell part of it before maturity or look for alternative accomodation
Option b is reduce d no of birds to 1500 and use d 2 rooms for raising d birds

8wks broilers are mostly sold to frozen feed clients so if u ve d Market why not,
But for people that buy life size its better to get to 10wks for greater market prize
