My Organic Experience Achieving 2.5kg In Broilers In 6weeks by pheonixdld2(m): 2:01pm On Jan 18
Good agriclanders.... Before this experience I would say what experience I have are from watching a friend in his farm,asking questions, reading forums here in nairaland, and foreign poultry forums and asking pro organic farmers both online and offline. I googled on the efficacies of different spices and leaves and their particular action on poultry.....interestingly you find many researches, test programs with results and journals.
Follow me through this 6weeks and let's see what outcome we get.

Received after ordering a week earlier the Agrited Ross 308 from summit agro services here in kubwa, Abuja.
61DOC , 2 ayodala hatcheries DOC was gifted to me by the vendor who brought all the DOC order and ready for collection that tuesday probably from poultry plaza.
IO administered.

A week before their arrival, we eventually complete the chicken house.
Image below is the chicken house during construction....exceeded my budget by twice the amount I planned due to untrustworthy capenter, but that's story for another day...lessons learnt.

Before their arrival I had made an extract of garlic, ginger and tumeric fresh blended and sieved...and put just 1 cap cover of the I liter sprite bottle in 1.5ltr of fresh water & also same the same measurement of Oga Saka cc Organicfoods immune booster, lab and super tagiri.
CC Organic foods
PS: The garlic, ginger and tumeric blend extraction is almost drained because I drink from its also. wink cheesy

Provided heat(charcoal heat) from just day 1-6 and discontinued. Would do the improvised heat (charcoal pot) for only day 1-4 in the next batch after this
Re: My Organic Experience Achieving 2.5kg In Broilers In 6weeks by pheonixdld2(m): 2:26pm On Jan 18
Day 2:
Contemplated between using newspaper or disposed cartons at the supermarkets in kubwa, apart from the cost in getting the newspapers, I reasoned that and observed after deciding on cartons that cartons are better.

Day 7:
Feed : Vital feed starter fed to them ad-libitum (price:#3600)
Ad-libitum meaning: As much or as often as necessary or desired. In simple English(24 hours,continous, nonstop).
Extract still added at 20ml each of the garlic, ginger,& tumeric blend ,also 15ml Oga Saka's herbs in 3ltrs of fresh water
Re: My Organic Experience Achieving 2.5kg In Broilers In 6weeks by pheonixdld2(m): 2:54pm On Jan 18
Day 8:
Interestingly on day 8 I bought cayenne peppers and blended a handful with a half clove of garlic.
Cayenne peppers are know to prevent and cure coccidiosis and the garlic act in the capacity of broad spectrum antibiotics and Immune guard.
So far no mortality and the little folks are extra hyper.
As for the newspapers, well I couldn't get cartons when i got to the supermarkets, so bought newspapers. Their litter got wet from water spilling from drinkers while placing them on the floor and they had served for 3 days already. So newspapers as litter(cost: 200 naira)

Nice one bro. but are they targeted for Easter or just training them for experiment.
It is not cost effective to train without targeting market or festive seasons where there is high demand which leads to higher profits as a result of the excessive demands

Meet market women and asked them and they said they will coke when the birds are ready and then we can discuss prices and I have met a frozen food shop (just 1 so far) and they said they buy processed birds in kg. I hope when I go this week I meet the owner and try to meet more frozen food shops too.
