Poultry is more profitable compared to piggery but still it has got more risks and work load before you come to the real benefits. Chicks are to delicate to deal with and if your not careful can lose 80% of them all when you are reluctant with immunization.

I would advise you approach it from a Business analysis stand point.

1. Do a Comparative analysis of both Poulty and Piggery
2. Do a Market analysis for both
3. Do a Risk appraisal for both
4. Do an Options appraisal for both
5. You financial outlay also comes into play. If a risk emerges, would you have the cost to control it, e.g urgent medical attention etc
6. Your Market appraisal, No 2 should be relevant to your intended location of operation.
7. Pick up a decent book or Journal on both and get some further insights into both operations.
8. Visit or make friends with people who are into both businesses and get some real-life insights from them
I hope all goes well !

Piggery is far better if you want steady and progressive profits without hypertension. But if you have a warchest to fritter away consider poultry.

Both are profitable

A layer chicken will lay an egg in 24-36hours i.e an egg a day or 2 eggs in 3 days and can lay consistently for at least 15 months before diminishing returns set in. Normally, laying continues up to 18 months but at a diminishing rate after 12-15 months.
At the end of the laying period, you will sell the chicken as an old layer for about N700.00 in Lagos around Christmas.
So if you have 500 healthy layers, you will get about 13-14 crates daily from about 22 weeks - 72 weeks.
The challenge in the business is the ability to maintain a disease free and consistently healthy flock throughout the laying period. A lot goes into this goal to make it a reality.

Piggery is also very profitable.
A female pig can produce piglets twice a year and in each pregnancy cycle can deliver 6-12 piglets.
If you have 10 female pigs on your farm and they are healthy,by the end of 12-18 months, you are in money

Whichever you wish to start, the choice is yours.
However, they are risky. Dont just look at the profitability.
Don't jump into any without thorough training and guidance.

sounds soo good on paper, but not in reality. well i must say ur analysis are all on point and it takes a lot of experience, i would go for the poultry because i have a bit of experience in it. buttttt.....here are the major challenges. 1. price of eggs hardly increase but feed prices soar astronomically. (dont forget transpotation of the feed, and saw dust/wood scrapping 2. their waste..how do u dispose of it? especially on a 500birds scale u do behind ur house with 2plots of land ..in a residential area, a farm u just use for subsistence. 3. market-ting of eggs and old layers...u say 700, people will say 500. 4. disease and pest, like cats, snakes and rats. please reply this. you will be doing me an invaluable assistance. thanks
