 Skeletal & Comparative Analysis Of Poultry To Fishery & Why Poultry Farmers Cry by Ade3000yrs(m): 12:39am On Jul 22, 2016 Here is a skeletal analysis and difference between poultry and fishery for an informed judgement.   It depends on d capital at hand and the kind of result you want. For u to run an average standard poultry, u need at least 8 to 10 units of poultry cage of 70k/cage to  house 120 birds/ unit cage x 10 units = 1,200 birds at #200 per a week or 2 weeks old broiler, total= #200x1,200 birds= #240,000 worth of birds + (#70,000 per cage ×10)=#700,000+ 200 birds feeds on a bag per day at #3,500 per bag thats= 6 bags × #3,500=#21,000 per day for the next 6 months= #3.8 million alone on feed or at least u half it and feed 400 chicken wt 1 bag per day, then u get #1.9 million naira on feed for 6 months. Plus d cost of pen set up of 400k to 800k all together + 150k for electrical wiring and lightening, gen 60k to #2 million naira Lister gen+ 250k to 500k for borehole +  management and security staff of 80k per month to pay just 3   to 4 staffs + deworming and antibiotics drugs and vaccination every 2 to 3 weeks. So do the maths and add up d maths for urslf and tell me if u hv 5 to 7 million naira to spend for 6 months on poultry only to sell at #2,500 per live broiler chicken while u sell the layers at #1,200 per one. Pls do your add up maths with your calculator. All these calculations are excluding Debeaker at 35k, + automatic poultry vacinator at 25k + Electric broader to keep your chicken warm at #35k and big size at 120k, manure scraper at 350k + egg incubator at 350k + feed additive of #10k per bag + weather temperature regulator at 7 k + Defeathering machine at 450k + gut removal 400k + an industrial cold room plant of #10 million naira to #15 million naira + 2 industrial John Holt or MIKANO lister gen of #2 million naira each plus your day to day cost of diesel = what?? This is why the big boys cry cos most of this business establishments run on loan worth of #100 million naira to #200 million naira  and aside that, you have to pray your chief accountant, general manager or ethically impaired staffs and management don't conive to run your business aground with improper records and poor inventories, documentation and poor or overblown or window dressed auditing. The sweeps usually comes like the plagues of Egypt and Pharaoh.   Hmmm I blv u see why most farmers loose badly, commit suicide or run mad in poultry business and while poultry importers and  Dangote, and Politicians doing d business in Nigeria goes home with the biggest share of poultry profit and smiles because they hv d money for d business. Imagine a poultry with a 300,000 to 400,000 stocks of birds and d set up and running cost and d anticipated profit. Yes poultry business is big business but not for d amateur or small boys in pocket size. But in fishery, with just 80k to 250k apart from your borehole cost of 250k to 500k, or with just a budget of #1 or #2 million naira, u will smile at the end of your 6 months harvest time as you can cut corners with fish feed innovatively, but for chicken, u dear not try it cos u could either fall sick, run mad or commit suicide in d outcome of d long anticipated result. In fishery, I always advise people to start small with a budget less than a million naira or possibly 80k to 250k, u can get optimum result and its ideal as a backyard business and yet you will make huge profit using flex, tarpuline, plastics or polygon tank as against the regular earthen pond or concrete ponds that could cost u more or extra. With just 800k, u can set up a standard deep littre Broilers based poultry system with a bird capacity of 1,500 birds. The problem with most poultry investment aspirants is that people want to out shoot their returns with little cash that's why they often run into chaos and sometimes loose all.Poultry business is only ok if u either have a big or mini feed mill, by so doing u can get alot out of your resources or u moderate d quantity of your poultry farm birds. At least 70% of the revenue burden that goes down into purchase of feed would be lifted off your shoulder. However, This is not to discourage anybody at all who loves the poultry venture as somebody must bear the risk for us all to at least afford Poultry meat in our meal or else the  country will continue to be at the mercy of importers and smugglers of poultry products. Using the best, most innovative and research mechanism for poultry, u can still get the best of little resources. Poultry business is a fantastic venture only if you can have a concerted or corporative effort when you form a small group of 20 to 40 persons and pull resources of a minimum of 100k contribution per person together to raise between #2 million naira to #4 million naira to start a reasonable poultry business with less and shared risk and yet have less cause to worry provided there is trust among the group, operating directors and management team. The problem with we Nigeria is that we all enjoy and practice the idea of "One Man Business," because alot of us have problem with trusting ourselves let alone a potential business partner. lack of trust and concerted effort kills business faster than the lack of fund to wheel a business through. This is not to discourage anybody from going into poultry business to run it alone provided u can provide your means and resources without an itch but in an overall great deal of sense, poultry business is not a business alot of Nigerians can run into with insufficient to avoid liquidation, bankruptcy and haphazard results. But in group or with corporative effort, poultry business is the biggest of livestock business anybody can imagine. I believe in the French phrase which says, "Unity is strength". "United we stand, divided, we fall" For your poultry and fish farm feasibility and business proposal, poultry and fish  farm set up, u can as well reach me via my lines or on watsapp. Poultry cages of 120 birds/unit are available for sell at 80k with all accessories and installation charges inclusive. 40 units of d cage are available for sales.  Its ok to do business without an incorporated name provided u don't have a problem with trusting and ineptitude, but to be on the safer side of the law and to have good business presence and representation, u just have to have your company name incorporated and employ the service of a forensic accountant and external auditor to check the State of your business from time to time so as to know where you have the drain pipes sucking the life out of your business if you have an investment with asset base that runs into millions of naira. With a budget of 50k and 120k, u can have your company name incorporated.
