1. First feed them because 80% are the cost of raising poultry (grill) from start to finish in food. For a grill to achieve an average body weight of 2.5 kg, 5 kg of feeding for a period of 6 weeks will consume. 5kg × 50 birds = 250kg

2. Total Feed

Feeding bag is with 25 kg and costs by N6000, so parts of 250 kg by 25kg = 10 bags × 6.000 = N60,000.

Each broiler is N450 × 50 birds = N22, 500,

6 feeding equipment and 6 drinkers in N350 All 12 × N350 = N4,200.

For the total medicament and the vaccine (glucose, multivitamin, antibiotics, anti-comborse, lasota vaccine × 3, gumboro vaccine × 1) = N5,000.

Total cost = N60,000 + N22,500 + N4,200 + N5,000 = N91,700.

With good management practices, which assumes a mortality rate of 4%, it will remains 48 birds when each of them is sold at N2,800 with a weight of 2.5kg each, the total is =48×N2800 = N134,000.

Total Profit = N134,000 - N91,700 = N42,300. In only 6 weeks.

This estimate includes only the costs for increased birds, food and equipment. The estimate is not with the cost of the housing or the cage, you can also use an abandoned cage or an empty building to perform some structural adjustments.

If you want to use a deep throw system, a room with an average size is sufficient in a house or an incomplete building and should be free of theft. Reaches your birds, the first 10 days are critical, as they need 18-24 hours of light and heat for food and development. Of course.
