This is quite interesting,but unfortunately the thread is so short because not everybody want to be a farmer but everybody want to eat food made by farmers,few people that are ready to serve in the farm will always be the king.Experience in animal husbandry is a plus plus,and you must have interest in taking care of animals before you can be successful in poultry business.You can start small and grow big.I started small but now i thank God.No doubt poultry business is capital intensive but never mind their is money in the business and it requires hard labour ,no pain,no gain ,you must fold your sleeves to ready for the farm jobs for you to be successful.The beautiful thing about it is you can sack your boss once you know how to make money through farming.Every year you keep expanding your flock ,that is the beautiful thing about poultry because your production cant be enough for the populace so you need more production.If everybody is into farming if we have excess we can send to those famine area of the world.Dont forget you can make bio fuel from your farm waste,this i have done for different farm owner and they are happy about it.wouldnt you wanna go green? I am proud to be a farmer and Engineer(Agricultural and bioresources Engineer).for your poultry waste into bio fuel for power generation and space heating, contact me (+234)-0802-8482-859

Good farmer will not rent cages for his bird,reason why is because of disease transmission.easily can you kill your chicken due to mobile diseases.

If you want to convert your farm waste to useful bio product you can contact me.

The profitability analysis is about the financial projections for 12 months of egg production for a 1000 chicken layers farm raised from day old age,prepared on Microsoft Excel format. Those applying for entrepreneurship/agricultural loans or grants will find it useful for writing their proposals or to support their applications.

The financial projection or profitability analysis (Profit & Loss Accounts) for 12 months has the following:
A) Layers Chicken:
1) Analysis of egg revenue from 1000 layers on daily and monthly basis for 12 months
2)Revenue from the disposal of old layers at the end of egg production
3)Analysis of farm expenses(diesel costs, salaries,transport,consultancy,miscellaneous,etc) on a daily and monthly basis for 12 months
4)Depreciation of major farm assets on a daily and monthly basis for the 12 months
5)The analysis of feed costs at the different stages of development in the chickens for the initial 20 weeks and during the egg production phase.
5)Gross and Net Profit position daily and monthly
6) Farm assets to set up + cost
7) The Sunk Cost i.e. the analysis of operating costs for the first 20 weeks from day old status to the commencement of egg laying.A cash flow projection for 12 months of sales is included in the report.

Thanks in advance.

Good day Nairalanders
I have interest in starting a poultry farm before I graduate from school and like I have always heard, always start small and grow big. I plan starting with a startup capital of between 200k to 250k. Please any advice on how to go about it as one of my biggest chalenge now is SPACE ( i mean land or poultry house). I stay around Ejigbo part of Lagos and can't start a backyard poultry because it's a rented apartment and my landlord won't be ok with it due to it's nature. I am really open to suggestions and advice.
Also what part of lagos can I get a land for about 150k and less since I can't locate it far away from my constant reach or is it ok for me to rent a space (though i have been told of it's negative impacts). Will be glad to hear from you all
Thanks as I awaits your infos

Poultry Farming is one of the viable businesses that anyone can do starting at a small scale.It is true that many of the unemployed Nigerians have no access to capital required to set up a business.It is true that some of the commercial banks are not willing to finance agricultural ventures especially chicken farming.

A bank known as the Bank of Agriculture,owned by the Federal Government of Nigeria is giving out loans to genuine farmers who can prove their genuineness.The F.G.N has provisioned N200 Billion as loans to farmers and the steps to access the loan are straight forward if you are a genuine person with genuine intentions.If you are an unemployed Nigerian graduate looking for paid employment,pay attention to this post and take a step of faith to key into it.

The steps to obtain the loan are as follows:
1) Locate the office of the Bank of Agriculture that covers the area or local government area where your farm is situated and open an account with the bank with a minimum deposit of N3000.00

2) For the ‘Know Your Customer’ (KYC) requirements, you must present your NEPA Bill which confirms your place of residence + any of the approved means of identification such as International Passport, Drivers License, National Identity Card or Voters Registration Card.

3) Other requirements are:
Complete and signed account form
Complete and signed mandate card
Present 4 passport photographs of yourself

4) You must run and operate the account for at least 3 -6months before applying for the loan. Do not think that you can just open the account, abandon it and show up after 6 months for the loan. The loan is not the usual national cake and the bank, newly repositioned, is not fooled. If you play that old game, the bank will doubt your integrity and commitment to repay the loan if granted and that means you may not get it.

Running and operating the loan means that you make it an active account. This means making sure that you save money and withdraw from the account on a regular basis. The bank wants to see that there are transactions going on in the account. Therefore, you should make regular deposits and withdrawals on the account during the 6 month period to create an active relationship that makes the bank have confidence in you.

5) You must have an existing farm, at a fixed location and the farm must have its record of operations and activities on a daily basis neatly kept. The era of armchair farmers/political farmers/farms of no fixed address/classroom farmers are over. The bank will visit your farm for inspection when you apply for the loan.

6) The bank will check what you have on ground; see how far you have gone; what the loan is required for, and ensure that the loan is appropriate for what it is required. The bank wants to know whether you have an adequate knowledge of your area of farming business. You must be able to demonstrate the practical hands-on experience in your area of farming. The bank wants to know whether you have a project you are working on and the fund requirements. And within a month of the inspection, the loan will be approved if the bank is satisfied.

You can obtain a loan of N250,000.00 from the Bank of Agriculture without any collateral.With this amount,you can set up a small backyard chicken business that will pay more than the elusive salary job you are seeking. Some graduates earn N15,000.00 monthly in the name of earning a salary.What a pity!I will show you how to go about setting up a small chicken business with as low as N100,000.00.Visit 1st signature below for estimates to set up a chicken farming business

What are you waiting for?
Get the location ready and put it into preparation before inviting the bank for inspection.
Then, go open an account with the Bank of Agriculture and operate it as required for at least 6 months.Make an estimate of the farm’s fund requirements and get it ready before applying for the loan.
