You need between fourteen to fifteen bags of 25kg max for eight weeks for you to make profit from the broilers as each bird should eat an average of 3.5 kg beyond that means you are really wasting feed, cheers

for 100 broilers, we get average weight of 1.8kg - 2kg.......though sometimes we start selling at 5 weeks......we have sold at 5 weeks 1 day before at 2kg....if you are lucky to start selling at 5 weeks, they might not eat up to the 15 bags

Sir please the market is relative from location to location. I operate in Uyo. The very last off season batch I sold around November and early December was 1k for processors who buy from 5 up whereas households that buy less than 5 goes for 1300-1500......the season market depends on factors like your products, your marketing ability and others......as of today, I heard that the price is pegged at 1200 for processors

ok am happy for you sir, being in the buisness for a year now, I found out that broilers grow very fast being fed only starter and it gives them more appetite using starter only I recommend you to use only TOP starter. And broilers are not fed growers only layers are fed growers before the farmers switches to layer mash.

over 2kg by 7weeks it would amaze you at the span they gain weight, even if you feel you should use finisher at the end try and use TOP, though it's expensive

broilers don't eat growers only layers, for broilers you only use starter and finisher but for layer you feed,Starter,grower and layer mesh.

as you would agree with me, poultry business profitability is largely dependent on the scale you operate. the truth is that the higher you produce, the lower your cost of production. doing 100 for start up is good but settling on 100 if you have space is wasteful. 5k used to run medication for 100 birds can also run medication for 200 birds. the profitability depends on your scale

meanwhile let's do a little plus /minus

100 birds at 200 per bird- 20,000
feeds- 4 bags of starter at 3750- 15000
11 bags of finisher at 3650-40150
drugs 5000
wood shavings/transport-2000
kerosene- 2000

total- 84,150

Working with a mortality of 5,

Revenue is 114,000
profit is 29,850.

With proper management and a little bit of knowledge and luck, you can reduce the mortality and the amount spent in medications. there is organic farming now where you can use things around you to stand in for drugs and they are even more effective. My vet is complaining that I don't call or visit as before, we have found better natural alternatives to drugs. Credit goes to my oga @organic foods

cool, remember to keep the heat on, the will need it for about 10-14 days if they are broilers. give them gendox (any getamincine drug) and vitalyte, withdraw the gendox on day four, give only vitalite and water. this is done to get them ready for vaccination on day 5, that Newcastle vaccination. and also give them vitalyte oon day 6 and start another antibiotics on day 7
