Raising Broilers For Profit
Below are some valuable info I got from some guys in nairaland and I wish to share them with you.

1. To succeed target hotels, eateries and cold rooms, or start your own outlet. Selling live birds is only sustainable under small scale and seasonal.

2. Rear 1000-10,000 birds per batch to make reasonable profit. Harvest should be at least weekly.

3. Feed adlibitum so that they grow fast. But introducing few hours of no feed will increase feed efficiency. A well-managed flock will weigh between 1.8-2.4kg in 6-7wks and upon dressing, will weigh between 1.4-1.8kg. this is the standard weight for most eateries.

4. Some companies that buy live birds pay between N410-600/kg live weight. Eateries and some cold rooms pay N600-820/bird dressed weight.

5. Profit Expectation: N150-250/bird.

6. Possible Needs: Cold room, defeathering machine.
