|Agriculture / Re: What Causes Snail To Bloat? by NGsnails: 5:48pm On Sep 14, 2020|
Your submissions are correct; snails do bloat when exposed to too much water but much more; the first cause of bloating is indigestion.
|Agriculture / What Causes Snail To Bloat? by NGsnails: 8:45am On Sep 14, 2020|
"How come nobody told me all these things? Which one is this again? But they said snail farming is the easiest of all livestock farming! � Now tell me what happened, cos I'm getting tired already" � These were the series of questions being thrown at me, by a "new farmer" and I really felt so bad for her�.
Go back again and check the pictures; this time, s l o w l y✍️, that is called BLOATING.✍️�
BLOATING is when a swelling occured on the skin of the snail, making it impossible for it to retract the skin inside its shell; which may lead to its death on the long run.
There are 2 major cause of bloating but for today, I'll only be discussing an aspect; FEEDING
You see; snails may get greedy at times, and they show greed when served with food high in Crude Protein Content or Starch (carb) Content
That's the reason I patiently dwell on feeding techniques in MODULE FOUR of our e-Learning, demonstration class. (You follow this link www.ngsnails.com/course to access it)
Over consumption of starchy food like maize, sorghum, millet, yam, cocoyam, potatoes etc; will make it difficult for the snail to digest the food and lead to bloating.✍️
Invariably, a poorly formulated feed can cause bloating too; more reason I always recommend you buy your snail feed from trusted, reputable feed producers.
Since FOOD BLOATING is caused by "over eating" it makes the snails expend all its energy, trying to forcefully retract into its shell; 95% of bloat cases lead to mortality. Isolation and depriving the snail food is a way to cure them of this tragedy.
Always remember, PREVENTION is better than CURE! Ensure you are more careful in your feeding techniques.
Do have a great week

|Agriculture / Predators On My Snail Farm by NGsnails: 9:09am On Aug 11, 2020|
Today, let's quickly talk about some ways to prevent predators from gaining access to your farm ✍️
When I decided to start farming snails on a large scale, I began to encounter different predators all around � well, I was so very scared that I'll have to run away when I encounter them. Fast forward to now, we don't spare any predator on the farm because, it may pose as a threat to the next team member working on the farm and may be caught unaware.�
Well, does that mean snails attract slot of predators?� Not at all; it's their environment that attract these predators. The fact that snails thrive in a cool environment, as such, many of their predators are also naturally drawn to a cool environment. (Who no like better place?��)
This is why you have to put up preventive measures against them (predators) getting to your snail farm and why you have to eradicate them as soon as you spot them on your farm.
Human is the first predator for your snails� Human beings just derive pleasure stealing snails (reasons yet unknown to me�)...

|Agriculture / How To Care For Your Snail Eggs And Make Them Hatch by NGsnails: 8:46am On Aug 10, 2020|
Today, I will like share with you all you need to know about THE INCUBATION AND HATCHING OF YOUR SNAIL EGGS �✍️�
“Why are most of my snail eggs not getting hatched?” If you’ve asked yourself this question in the past few days, then this article is for you.
There are probably some steps you’re not getting right, but not to worry, we all didn't succeed on a gold platter; I had my own fair share of failure too���
What kindled my fire for research is because all I see is plenty eggs but little baby snails� it's frustrating and makes it look like a waste of time farming snails�� but now?� we record a 95% success rate with our snail eggs, and I'm certain this article will point you in the right direction on how to successfully hatch your snail eggs.��
For you to easily understand this article, let's quickly discuss the snail pen under three categories:
✍️ The Parent Pen: this is the pen where your parent snails (the breeders) lay their eggs
✍️ The Incubation Pen: just like the name sounds, it is the pen where the incubation process takes place
✍️ The Nursery Pen: the pen you move your baby snails to after they have been hatched...

You need to keep good hygiene in your snail pen. The white dots you saw is a reaction to a fungal infection. change your pen soil.
|Agriculture / Re: The A-Z Of Snail Farming In Nigeria (what Nobody Will Tell You For Free!) by NGsnails: 10:03pm On Jul 26, 2020|
It is advisable to carry out a predator check on your farm before you setup a snail farm. In cases where you have ant hills (or castles) on your farm, first destroy them and kill the ants before building.
Finally, you need to construct predator control mechanisms around your pen.
Different pen with different predator control techniques. You can as well share a picture of your housing system
|Agriculture / Re: The A-Z Of Snail Farming In Nigeria (what Nobody Will Tell You For Free!) by NGsnails: 10:00pm On Jul 26, 2020|
As a new farmer, it is advisable to pickup your snail eggs with a plastic spoon to increase the hatch rate. But as you grow in the business, you'll discover efficient ways of doing these things.
Lastly, As a newbie, eggs laid in the soil by the snails should be left to hatch by itself while eggs laid carelessly on the soil can be picked and incubated separately.
|Agriculture / Re: The A-Z Of Snail Farming In Nigeria (what Nobody Will Tell You For Free!) by NGsnails: 9:56pm On Jul 26, 2020|
Of course it is! But you will have to create a very conducive housing structure (Thatched roof) and increase your wetting pattern.
|Agriculture / Re: Snails: The Perfect Meal For Your Snails by NGsnails: 3:30pm On Dec 04, 2019|
The way you care for your snails is your management practices. Even if you get the best feed formula and you lack the basic skills on how to care for your snails, you may experience a spontaneous mortality events.

|Agriculture / Earthworms In My Snail Pen: Should I Be Scared? by NGsnails: 5:39pm On Feb 02, 2019|
Growing up as a child in Nigeria��, I used to have this religious sentiments about earthworms� and I was made to believe that seeing earthworms around has some "spiritual implications"�� and as such; THEY MUST BE KILLED! ��
Unfortunately, getting to my snail pen this morning; I saw some battalion of earthworms swarming through my snail pen!��
Please, what should I do?�
These were the enquires from a terrified snail farmer on a phone conversation � with me.��
Although your snails and the earthworms share a few similarities like:✍️
1️⃣ They are Hermaphrodites
2️⃣ They both serve as Bio-indicators to the environment
3️⃣ They both feed on organic matters etc.
But many a times; we are still curious IF overpopulation of the earthworms in the pen can kill the snail and most importantly, HOW THE EARTHWORMS FOUND THEIR WAY INTO YOUR SNAIL PEN?��
For couple of days, I shall be sharing some Benefits of earthworms to your snails and how to improve your management practices using Earthworms ✍️��

The long awaited visitor is here
THE HARMATTAN SEASON��
it's quite normal to get nervous about the season since it takes its own distinctive effect on humans themselves.
The Harmattan season is specially characterised with dry air, dusty environment and fluctuations in temperature.
All these features result in low relative humidity which have a great effect on the snails; making them have low appetite to feed, low egg production and low mating activities.
Don't worry, sit back and relax
we shall be discussing some hacks to ensure productivity on your farm within the next few days.
What is your greatest fear during this season? Let me know via the comment section.���

During the dry season, the temperature is relatively high. Imagine sun rises at 6am, and sun sets around 6;30pm That's alot of heat on the snails and they really uncomfortable.
That's the more reason you need to get a monitor to the track the temperature of your pen.
