Summary of your idea

Agricultural sector is the engine of growth in virtually all developed nation in which Nigeria has failed to tapped since the emergence of oil boom in the 1970s. A strong and efficient agricultural sector has the potential to enable a country feed its growing population, create employment opportunities, generate income for the country, earn foreign exchange and provide raw materials for industries. Poultry farming is the act and science of controlled rearing of birds like chicken, turkey, quail, in a restricted environment from day-old to maturity. The activities are compulsory for maximum output. We intend to adopt the process of continuous batch production. This means that production duration will be three month per batch meaning that well will produce in mass four times in a year for broiler and our egg will be a daily production of 40 to 50 creates per day. The activities involves include accommodation, preparation/biosecurity, house preparation, chicks management, Temperature guide, feeding management, water management and consumption, medication, lighting program and ventilation management Processing of matured birds activities which are part of our value proposition include: 1. Hanging 2. Stunning- This is done by knife or water bath, immobilizing birds help in calming birds. 3. Killing- Done by knife and by casual workers 4. Scalding- Putting in warm water to relax feather 5. Picking or defeathering- To remove feather by pickers 6. Evisceration opening of body cavity to remove intestines 7. Cut hocks to remove intestines 8. Cut up- cutting of canvass into pieces 9. Deboning The market for poultry product is large but the demand is lesser than the supply. This large demand for poultry produce makes the marketing of poultry product interesting. Innovative that we will put in place include roasting of whole chicken, cut up into pieces like chicken breast, drum-stick, thigh, burger.

There is a high tendency of the business the business to succeed as a result of the numbers of people in the business. people tends to do the business only for festive period when they believe the demand is high but it is better done all through the year because the percentage of poultry product imported from other country is high and at most time not good for the health of the people because of the chemicals used in preserving them. The product is consumed by all the classes of people in the country irrespective of the age, sex, religion, occupation, social status and so on The mortality rate, sick ones and culled bird at the end of each production process The volume of sales and turnover realized from eggs and chicken at the end of each production process.
