Eggs Theft In Poultry: What Is The Way Out? by donestk(m): 3:48pm On Jun 03, 2018
Greetings farmlanders,

I write on behalf of my aunt who's on the verge of shutting down her farm due to eggs theft by her workers.

The more she put in checks, the more the workers devise new means.

I promise to provide advisory to her on a lasting solution.

Farmlanders please proffer workable solutions to save a business on the verge of collapse.

Mod please move to FP.

Thanks!

My opinion might sound funny bt first put jus 1 or 2 persons in charge of d store were d crates of eggs are kept and they should b arrange in a way that could easily be counted on daily bases with ur record boy, number sold that day. Gve them strict warning that if any gets missing u would sack or deduct it 4rm their payment and as such no body is allowed inside d store apart 4rm them. If it still gets missing dismise all it means they are corrupt. secondly u could meet sum1 to do sumtin like charm with fowl feathers and hang in a way that only d workers can see make sure customers dnt come across it else u may lose some of them. Bside let ur workers knw that if any1 steals anything from d shop they will run mad afta 7days. Find d name of 1 strong native doctor 4rm ur side and tell them he was d one that prepared the charm. Thanks.

There is no control system that can be 100% effective which an absentee farmer can put in place to avoid egg thefts as long as the staffers are not honest.The best way to go is for the farmer who will not always be on the farm is to do the following:

When the chickens start egg production and have attained the peak of production and are laying consistently, the farmer must be present on the farm with the staff on daily basis for a week or two and determine the average egg production per day and per week. If the farmer is an absentee farmer, having determined the average egg production per week, let the staff know that that average is what must be delivered on daily or weekly basis.

If the chickens produce higher than the average, the staff can take the excess but the daily or weekly return must not fall below the average per day or week as the case may be. If it falls, they have to pay for the difference.Then when the chickens egg production enters the diminishing phase, the farmer has to set a new average egg production per day or per week.

If the farmer wants to see every egg laid, then he must be there 24 hours. If he cannot be there and has dishonest staffers, then this method is better. This means the farmer must understand the laying pattern of layers chickens over a period to be able to determine the average per day or week.

The solution is to close the poultry if the owner cannot be there whenever the pens will be opened.

The only solution is to invoke the spirit of Ayilala, Songo, Obatanla, Shokpono, Amadioha, Ngene Ukwenu into your poultry farm. Poultry Farm attendants are the most wicked set of human on earth, they sent me parking, I had a farm, started with 1,200 layers, had my job going on for me and put farm attendant to man the farm for me while I visit farm on weekend, infact the guys dealt with me, I fired them and managed to get other one, those ones where even the worst, at the end I sold off the remaining, made a total lost. I hate poultry farm attendants to the call. My advise, never should any one be an absentee farmer.

The best but the most outrageous advice I can render to you is this, if your aunt know she can't be at the farm 24/7, she should sell off the birds, no amount of measure you put in place to checkmate the attendant dubious activity, they will always outsmarts you.

The answer is simple.
Tell your aunty to rear only male chickens.
That way there will be no egg for the thieves to steal.

Too much sense wee not kee me.

CCTV, offer staff bonuses with targets, audit entry and exit; use rf access cards, allocate sections to individual or teams of staff to manage.

Create problems to see how staff respond.

I concur....fire everyone and replace them. Install a camera too. That will scare them. Also anyone leaving the farm at any point in time should be thoroughly searched by a security man/woman as their main job. They will be held responsible for any missing egg hence they won't take sh.it. also ensure no personal effects like bags or extra clothes should be taken anywhere near the birds cages. If possible, get a locker close to the security house where everyone drops his or her personal belongings before they go in with only their work cloths Already worn on their bodies and non working clothes put in their locker with their personal effects.

she should switch to battery cage system.

then lock the poultry house when not in use and then she'd supervise egg collection (cos all eggs would) have rolled to a place.

she can also easily identify barren birds too.

Don't she know the possible number if eggs she can get in a day..... If not then she should be a farm manager for a while to be able to judge correctly.....you can't be in a business you don't know your output well....
But if reverse is the case then let her sake some old workers there.... They have known her weakness

There are other great suggestions people have given, but can she give them very good staff discounts for a particular maximum quantity of eggs (for example, 2 or 3 crates per month) so that they pay little for it and resell to make money? or perhaps even the crazy suggestion of giving them some free quantities of eggs a month and see whether they continue stealing. There is clearly no excuse for stealing but they may be doing this because they don't earn well and have to make extra bucks. It is difficult to address these types of issues.
