Explain your idea in details:

Chickens: it is basically buying a day old chicks from the hatchery rearing them for about 5 to 12 weeks before selling them off. The process of rearing is quite technical and sensitive, as a result adequate knowledge is required to see one through without recording huge amount of loss/casualties to the birds. Adequate knowledge about what type of feed they require at different stages, vaccines and how to administer them, what signs to look out for on possible illness and so on. For fishes we do the hatching our selves, hatching involves taking sperm from a male fish and mixing it with the egg of a female fish to fertilise the egg after 24 hours the eggs will hatch, you'll have a day old fishes.all this take place inside a jar usually referred to as the nursery while after hatching the fishes are usually transferred to an incubator. Handling or caring for a day old fishes is quite technical, more technical than handling chickens, any minor infection can result in casualties, sometimes loosing the whole fishes. The beauty of this once they are up to one month old the chances of making it to maturity is higher and unlike chickens where you need vaccines all the fishes need is just food and clean water. Producing chicken feed for sale and consumption, this process involves mixing common ingredient like maize, soya beans, wheat, fish and bone meal in certain quantity depending what category of birds you rear for example: layers i.e. birds that are reared for egg production alone need to consume feeds that have more protein and bone meal so as to harden the shell of the eggs they produce. Feeds are off 3 types they are layers match, growers, starter, finisher etc.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

Sustainable agriculture is the only major way of achieving food security anywhere in the world, poultry farming is very lucrative in Nigeria because there is a ban on imported poultry product which creates a deficit, according the poultry association of Nigeria president ayoola odutan local demand for frozen products is over two million metric tonnes per annum, and local farmers are only able to produce three hundred thousand metric tonnes per annum, every stage or process of rearing this chicken is sustainable, all the waste product are either bio degradable or are useful in other aspect of life... e.g. foul shit can be used as manure for plant,

Plans for implementation and sustainability

for now we only rear birds for festive seasons like Christmas, new year and easter, usually rear 200 birds or less during this period, the activities involve are feeding the birds, cleaning the pen,i.e. Removing foul shit, vaccinating as at when due, and producing the feeds, I am also planning to go into feeds production for sale.. i.e. mixing foul feeds not for my birds alone to sell to other farmers too, sometimes we also require solar powered lamp for the chicks to be able to feed during the night

Hello fellow passenger,

You might have heard the famous song "What I've done" by Linkin park. The lyrics have been beautifully carved by the late singer Chester Bennington. The song covers the ways in which our so called development has helped only a handful of the upper society members, whereas people are still living in poverty.

We have a great platform here which is urging super brains from around the world to come together and collaborate with their ideas and help make this world a better place to live in. You have been a part of this community and I congratulate you on your effort that you have put in.

Thanks once again and all the best for the future

Comrades,
In this fight for a sustainable future, what we need is innovation; something which is not necessarily new, but which makes us look at things from a different angle.

I believe this is one of the major motives of this community which we are a part of. Taking one step together hand in hand towards our goal is the only way we can achieve it.

So I wish you the very best in this endeavour of yours and hope to see you together in the new tomorrow

Hello,
Being a part of India's well known Entrepreneurship Cell of the most prestigious engineering college in India, I have interacted with many startup enthusiasts, have got to know how they think and what are some qualities that set them apart from the ones who are not able to see their idea through. Reading through your idea, I have realised that your idea has that spark which can help it become a successful venture. Coupled with its aim to help the society achieve its goals sustainably, your idea can be something quite helpful for the same.

But before it's implementation, you need to do a "pre-mortem" check on how it can fail. This would prepare you for any uncalled-for circumstances and help you prepare for them accordingly.

Lastly, I would like you to have a look at our idea, GreenSpace, and share your views about the same.

Wishing you the best,
Team GreenSpace.

Hi,
After going through your idea, I firmly believe that you can successfully convert it to an executable project and help the society grow in a sustainable manner. I wish you the best for the same.

I would really appreciate if you could go through my idea as well(follow this link https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/12/5961/comments). Our idea deals with covering an otherwise unused rooftop of a building with green plants, and using that space for a multitude of activities. This would have various positive effects on the environment and also the society in general.

Thank you

Hello Ali,

In many third world countries, especially in Africa agriculture is the primary economic activity. And therefore, production of livestock and feeds of livestock could be a good answer for the countries development. It is really good idea and you have stand for it.

Hello,
I invite you kindly to comment my idea Path To Knowledge. I would be glad to hear your advice. I have written this message after I commented almost all ideas and projects and probably yours too. I am deeply sorry if this message bothered you, but everyone on this platform wants to go to the finals with his/her idea and makes all it is possible to get there. Maybe not all the actions are fair. Some participants copies the same meaningless message and paste it to all ideas. I just do marketing. Again, I am sorry if this message disturbed you.

Dear Ali Abuduli
You have a good idea that You want to keep Chickens using your own feeds, this has been challenge to most of farmers who used to buy feeds. You can involve yourself in Value chain addition in local grains like maize, rice and any Agricultural products to maximize profit and easy access to materials for animal feeds.
All the best
See you at the top.

August 18, 2017 05:56

Hi
Your idea is Good and innovative. I suggest that you keep on moving with this idea as more Partners and collaborators may wish to join.
All the best.
See you at the top.

August 17, 2017 15:55

Hello Ali!

It is true that sustainable agriculture is a major way of ensuring food security for all, which your idea tends to achieve. This will eventually, combat hunger and poverty in the society.

I wish you success and you can stop by on my idea to add your contribution!

Best of Luck!

August 9, 2017 21:18

Hi
I don't know about ur country but here in SA,chicken are the best meat sellers even though their prices are high because of the amount of feed they take from a day old up until the transaction day.it is quite expensive.try dividing your chichens in different storages so that when they catch an illness you won't loose the whole stock because they affect one another.another thing to make sure you have the right cashflow,make sure the ages of your stock vary.for example,after every two weeks,buy or hatch fish and chicken so that you will always gave stock to sell.and lastly make sure you have deals and contractswith supermarkets and meat sellers so that they can buy stock at bulks.I wish you good luck

August 9, 2017 14:11

Hi Ali,

Your idea is good I support it.
It has the potential of producing a lot of livestock in Nigeria. I'm mostly interested in the production of feeds, especially of fish feeds. Do you make fish feeds too?

Contact me @ [email protected]

This is a good idea and you will make profit with it, but how is this idea different from many others who are doing the same? Do you want to focus your idea on just one local place?
Good luck,
Andrei

June 5, 2017 20:50

Hello,

It's a great idea indeed...All the best wishes for the same.. But it also involves the investment of capital..So if you would explain me that what profit you will be getting from this idea.

Regards

May 16, 2017 08:18

I think involvement of technology will enhance this idea better and increase its suitability towards the aims and objectives of the UN SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

April 27, 2017 20:59

Hi yoke pine
Yes my method is similar, but the silver lining here is the fact that there is a deficit in poultry product, a very huge deficit, that give room for success if, we put more effort into it

April 27, 2017 11:22

That is a nice idea, you can think of not making it during festive period alone but make it a regular thing to do because people eat fish daily and yiu can think of smoking it too and then package it will expand it

April 23, 2017 23:47

Hi Ali,

Thank you for sharing your idea! May I ask if the methods you are using are similar or different to what other people in Nigeria are doing?

Cheers
Yoke

In the society we live in today, many companies are interested in the farmers who produce a large quantity of eggs of decent size, so they can market the eggs as "organically produced premium eggs". Many farmers use GMOs, additives, and chemicala to attain such goals. I advise you to spread awareness of the harm of chemicals, and actively endorse your concept, as it will be appealing to those who are concerned about all- natural foods.

April 20, 2017 21:57

Good work. Your write-up shows you actually have the basic knowledge about fish farming. I will advice you make more research on your project, and probably visit some well known fish farms and poultery to learn more from them.
