|5 Golden Rules Of Successful Broiler Farming by guidefreak(m): 11:22pm On Mar 23, 2019|
Successful broiler farming is only achievable when you follow some rules. There are rules for every business, and broiler farming is not an exception. In this article, I will not waste your time before sharing some rules that successful broiler farmers always obey. Let's begin with the one you probably know already.
Don’t Starve Your Broilers
Those who have been practicing Broiler Farming for some time will agree with me when I say that broilers are “meat-making machines”. That’s what they are. These genetically endowed chickens are hardwired with the trait to grow very fast and reach market weight as early as 6 weeks. In fact, if you have been doing broiler farming for a while, you can almost notice their size and weight difference in the space of 12 hours. That is, when you leave them in the morning and come back in the evening, you will see that they have grown. Again, that’s what they are - meat-making machines.
To get the best from your broiler chickens and help them to maximize their growth potential, they must not be starved. A study claims that broilers begin to ‘eat up themselves’ (break down body fat) when starved for up to 6 hours. Give your birds as much feed as they can consume. After all, it’s what they convert into meat. But there is a clause on their feeding, and that’s discussed in the next point.
Broilers Say Heat is a Bastard
You and I may have ways of escaping from the effect of excessive heat, but there is almost nothing broilers can do if you expose them to excess heat. This is why it is important to consider the heat factor when considering the type of housing to use. You must do everything possible to keep them cool at all times. This includes high roof, sufficient shade, cool water and lesser feed during hot days. For the feed, it is better not to feed your broilers if you see them panting during hot days. Giving them feed will only add to the heat stress that is already killing them.

4 Natural Growth Promoters for Broilers (Organic GP)
When broiler farmers raise broiler chickens, there are three things on their mind. The first is how they can make sure that the broilers reach the highest possible weight in the shortest time possible. While there are options when it comes to the use of growth promoters for broilers, organic growth promoters are safer. Usually, farmers adopt the use of Antibiotic Growth Promoters in broiler diet to help promote growth. Some of the dietary antibiotics used include Flavomycin, Zinc bacitracin, and Virginiamycin. Some studies claim that Virginiamycin is the most effective option among the three.
So that we don’t shift the focus of this article, let me tell you why these dietary antibiotics may not be the best. It’s simply because dietary antibiotics result in antibiotic resistance. This explains why NAFDAC has banned the inclusion of antibiotics in animal feed. In this article, I will unveil some natural/organic growth promoters that farmers are using to promote broiler growth. These are safer, cheaper, and do more than promote growth but also keep your chickens healthy. Alright, let me introduce to you some growth recipe.

A clients chatted me up today, and showed me how his broilers were already weighing 1.5 kg at 3 weeks and 5 days. So, I decided to share something on that hoping to help as many people that will read this to the end.
Broiler weight per week is a very important parameter to check if you are into broiler farming. After all, it all ends with the amount of meat your broiler chickens are able to generate from the feed you give them. So, you may ask, is there a standard weight for broilers per week? In this article, I have provided a broiler chicken weight chart showing you what you should get if you are doing it right. This chart should help you monitor your results and know if you are on track.
What To Expect
I have seen people who ask me, “how much feed per broiler chicken?” If that is your question, then the following broiler chicken weight chart should answer that up to the 9th week of rearing.
In case your own question is how much to feed chickens per day, then you will get your answer too.
Because Male and Female broilers don’t have the same weight, I will be wrong not to separate the sex parameter in the chart. So I have created two different charts to represent male and female sexes.
