Hi,

I am Kelly Akpomedaye, founder of Redorion Ventures Which includes Farmsocio.com, Redorion Agribusiness School and Redorion Farms.

This thread is opened to share with you my experience in raising a sample breed of 50 broiler chickens (The Marshall breed).

Day old Chicks arrived: 02/06/2021.

I will be sharing their progress for all to see how well they do as we go.

I hope through this thread people are going to learn or at least get inspired to participate in this subsector despite its challenges.

While you wait for the next update, kindly read about the 6-strategies-for-combating-the-current-price-hikes-in-the-broiler-production-sub-sector on my platform, kindly visit the link below.

Written in 2020 however, the strategies are timeless.

Hi there,

I am sure your day has been great.

I said I would be giving updates to share the progress of the birds so without saying much, let me just feed you with the key details.

We have a sample population of 51 birds (Marshall Breed) because there is usually an extra chick added in each carton purchased from hatcheries.

Total mortality (number of deaths):

One chick died at day 3 which is very painful to me because that’s a complete loss of potential income to me or loss of meat in my stew pot. The death was due to unhealed abdomen and it has been raining day and night recently so I guess it could not stand the weather and decided to give up however her brothers and sisters are doing just fine. smiley


Average weight of the chicks at day 7:

169.2g


I achieved the above result by taking 10% of the total population (5), added their individual weight together and divide by 5.
However, many of the birds did achieve weight above 180g – 200g.

Since I could not give the update at exactly day 7 of the chick’s life and it didn’t occur to me to take pictures, I decide to take pictures today which is day 9 of the bird’s life and the average weight for today 11/06/2021 is 255g however some achieved weigh above 300g as seen in the pictures. cool


I will be sharing more progress report for all to see how well they do as we go.

I hope that through this thread people are going to learn or at least get inspired to participate in this subsector despite its challenges.
