Cost Of Raising 100 Hundred Broilers In My Home-made Poultry by Help4rmme2u(m): 5:11pm On Jun 07, 2018
Hi friends I just finished serving,I managed to save up to #100,000 during my service year, and as the job is not forth coming I engaged my self in poultry farming.


Below are my expenses and achievements so far..
Feeders 5 piece x #400 each = #2000
Drinkers 5 piece x 350 each = #1750
Feeds (for now) 5 bags x 3700each =#18,500
Vaccines for now =#2000
Birds(Broilers) 2 weeks old = 400x 100 =#40,000

Total expenses so far: = #64,250

NB: I built the Birds Houses my self with some woods given to me by a friend working on a site.

These birds are two weeks 3 days, and eating like glutton.

If you are carrying out feasibility studies already this is the right place to be because I will be posting any occurrence on the course of training my birds.....


Your advice's and opinions are welcome.

Wondering why you decided to suspend the floor of the pen? unless you plan to use underneath.
You could have saved on cost of labour( even if you constructed it yourself) and periodic cleaning would be easier.
Finally I don't know your location but with only the side covered with net, your birds may experience heat stroke during the dry & hot season.
Wishing you all the best and try to save on feeding buy buying quality feed and don't starve/manage the birds.

Wow!! Thanks a lot jaasel for your wonderful opinion..

I suspended the floor because I might use the beneath for something else later on....

Also I don't find it difficult cleaning bird poo,, its what av decided to do so I see no stress in it.

Finally, I think am even afraid of the cold over here this days... Those two openings you see there are as perfect as I could have wished for... Between the woods there are spaces for good ventilation..... An if you all must know Sylvafoods Nigeria Ltd is the brand.. We are located at Lugbe, Abuja

I hope your birds won't suffer heat stroke in dry season. If you visited poultries, you would have observed that the sides are covered with nets or wires to aid ventilation. And during cold season there is tarpaulin to cover the side to reduce ventilation.

I think I addressed that already, scroll up to see our previous discussions...

For now it's still 100/100 birds, thanks to God almighty.

Just place balanced block on the floor and then place the drinks on it.

Great start! Let me chip in some lines of advice,good to know you started with what you have. On your cage construction,if you don't make an adjustment,it might favour you now,and keep you in pains later,the best thing to do now is after the this batch remove the wood in front and use net for it,you can buy already sewn cement bag,or ask your friend to help you with some,then use it and cover the net if there is cold,which you can also remove during hot weather.
Secondly get more feeders and drinkers,reason; let the birds have access to food and water at the same it time,in return it will increase their uniform growth.
Thirdly always clean your pen twice a week, to avoid ammonia build up and do not allow water to pour on the floor. You can also raise their feeders and drinkers up from the ground . "See you at the top,because below is too crowded"

Sir,broilers are raised for for 6 weeks,at worst 8 weeks,before processing it anything longer than that,then you are eating into your profit,that is if you selling to processors,but if you are targeting christmas sells or festive periods,then you can keep for longer time,you have the time to give growers etc.
