100 Agrited broilers (5th October 2017)
https://www.nairaland.com/3723391/broiler-farm-50-tuns-broilers/11#61140371

Old thread
I just ordered 50 broilers from Tuns Farm through http://poultryplaza.com/max-broilers-arbor-acres-1139.html.
I will be updating this thread with pictures, drugs and feed update for the two months i am expected to raise them.
Attached is the order receipt though i was charged N6,852.79 including bank charges for 50 day old tuns broiler.

I decided to choose tuns because it is one of the best hatcheries in Nigeria in terms of international quality standards and also one of the top two producers of broilers in Nigeria. Other good alternatives are Zartech's Cobb 500 and Agrited's Ross 308.

So many wrong notions. I'm sure you're going by what you told. We've been to and patronized loads of hatcheries in Nigeria and we know what's obtainable regarding standards and practices.


*Zartech doesn't just have the Cobb 500. They also have other strains among other things. So many antibiotics; why not go the organic way?

Green is life smiley


Good luck sir

Can you tell me the wrong notions please. Welcome to the thread Mr Turk.

Zartech has the Cobb 500 strain and what's your answer to that?

The only antibiotic here is Est Mix Wsp. Where did you see the many antibiotics? tongue

What options are available? You don't just say don't give antibiotics. You give substitutes.

EMMAACHILE and turks which hatchery has the best doc broilers?

I don't know but in my opinion, I would go with the biggest and certified hatcheries.
My personal best would include but not limited to Tuns, Zartech, Amo, Chi and Agrited

The two biggest producers of broiler in Nigeria are Chi and Tuns while the two highest internationally certified hatcheries are Zartech and Tuns.

Agrited has one of the advanced equipment in Nigeria capable of producing up-to 2,000,000 day old chicks per day.

Amo is known for good research and development program in their hatchery.

So the best will depend on individual choice, Obiageli. Hope my choice will not draw negative attention here kiss
Re: My Broiler Farm (7-10 Weeks) by EMMAACHILE(m): 7:54pm On Apr 05, 2017
Most local seasoned (aged) farmers here in my area will pick products from Chi, Zartech over other hatcheries.

Thanks for your response, we probably should create a topic so as not to derail your thread. Nice work you are doing here

Withdrawal is barely 12 days. Inorganic doesn't mean it's bad, it simply means it's not organic.
Re: My Broiler Farm (7-10 Weeks) by frisky2good(m): 3:01pm On Apr 06, 2017
Bros how far? Chicks don come? All of us cannot do organic farming. Those that can do it should face it.

Embazin forte may not be used since Est Mix WSP already control coccidiosis and Rico Gado feed has coccidiostat in it's broiler programs

Inorganic means there's always a residue. How many Nigerians follow the withdrawal periods to the letter?This is why our meat and eggs cannot be exported. The yolk and meat when subjected to tests exhibit massive toxic substances not suitable for consumption yet here we are saying inorganic isn't toxic. LOL.

This is me speaking in general terms. smiley

As long as you adhere to the withdrawal periods, you are very safe.

Very few farmers play by the rules. Which brings us back to the same problem.

No fear. I want to know whether you go by the organic way of raising poultry.
Re: My Broiler Farm (7-10 Weeks) by frisky2good(m): 4:46pm On Apr 06, 2017
I know itagiri and I keep them whole where I rear my birds but it's just because we used it to prevent "koli" in those days grin. As for the others, I only got to know about them on NL. I also know about pawpaw leaves and juice but the question is, can these things really be administered when there is an outbreak of disease on a large farm? Will I risk preventing gumboro or ND for less than 2k and be administering agbo to my birds? When someone comes up with a complete organic poultry timetable, I might consider trying it. OR if you offer to guide me I can try it with 100 birds when I have space.
