Poultry business is probably one of the most profitable and beneficial farming business around. Gone are the days when poultry farming is only for the poor, when chicken is only adopted and kept in the backyard by the poor commodities living in the rural slums or villages.
The huge potential in this business was still untapped until recently when competent businessmen realized benefit of poultry farming and got attracted towards it. Today, commercial Poultry farming has become one of the biggest agricultural business worldwide because people prefers white meat more to the red meat.
Poultry farming business is still heavily untapped in Nigeria as more than 80% of our daily consumption is said to be imported from another countries. Now, imagine the profit potential of supplying chicken and chicken products to over 80% of Nigerians.
Think of the fact there are multiple ways to make money from poultry business.
The Eggs – Egg is a good source of low-cost high-quality protein, providing 6.3 grams of protein (13% of the daily value for protein) in one egg for a caloric cost of only 68 calories. The structure of humans and animals is built on protein. We rely on animal and vegetable protein for our supply of amino acids, and then our bodies rearrange the nitrogen to create the pattern of amino acids we require. Everyone needs at least two eggs daily.
These put the production and supply of chicken eggs in a very high demand. A crete of egg is currently sold around N700, MULTIPLY that to how many cretes you produce!
Day Old Chick – Raising day old chicks in Nigeria has become very popular because you only need a viable batch of eggs for hatching, a reliable incubator and a working knowledge of poultry incubation.
Also selling day old chicks can be done locally as thousands of poultry farmers are looking for it everyday. Your hatchery could be just what people in your community needed as a nearby source of day old chicks.
Many people would like to raise chickens themselves, rather than to buy pullets but are unable to get or hatch enough day old chicks. One is sold at approximately N200.
The Chicken – You don’t need to be told about this, chicken meat is currently commands the highest demand in the market. If you have it, you have all the money in the world.
