CHIKEL POULTRY FARM
Explain your idea in details:
Feasibility Study on the establishment of a poultry farm is based on the survey made by Green Kevin James, and the business will be wholly owned by him. The name of the poultry farm will be name CHIKEL FARMS and will concentrate on sales of eggs and table meat bird (boilers). We will supply birds and eggs to different quick service restaurant in south south Nigeria and our vision is to be one of the known poultry farm product supplier in Nigeria with a mission to raise healthy birds at a very profitable venture. From the research that was carried out it was discovered that the demand for eggs and bird meat is not fully satisfied around some areas of Rivers State, though they are already existing poultry farms operating around borders of Rivers and Imo state environment, the poultry farm will be sited at Omagwa in Ikwere Local government area of Rivers state a neighboring environment to Imo State, there are high demand in some part of Port-Harcourt, Obio-Akpo and some part of Bonny. The legal requirements for the establishment of this venture such as local government revenue (tax) per month and security payment (vigilante) per month have been inquired and will be carefully complied with. The business will help in providing employment to the locals, meeting the demand of eggs and making the price affordable for easy purchase. CHIKEL FARMS intends to develop into other livestock farming structures such as turkey, duck, guinea fowl and quail.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
CHIKEL FARMS products will be priced at affordable rate. When a markup is placed on any of our products, customers will be willing to pay because of the affordable price. It will also create employment opportunity for unemployed youth living within and outside the community and the state at large. The business to be established is a poultry farm that will concentrate on the production of eggs and sales of broilers, birds because of the fund required the venture will start as a small scale business having the population of three Local Government Area of Rivers State, which are Port-Harcourt, Obio-Akpor, Ikwere, Eleme and Bonny are target market. The farm site will be a permanent land and will need necessary equipment for its operation as it is entirely new firm to start from the scratch.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
The firm will be a commercial poultry farm; therefore it will require a full time labour and geared towards productivity on a scale for the sales of egg and sales of broiler birds. For egg production, birds usually starts to lay at 18-22 weeks of age and continue to lay for Twelve months (52weeks) on average laying fewer egg as the new mounting period. The typical production cycle last about 17 months (72 weeks) and involves three district phases as follows: PHASE 1: Pullets or broilers: This phase last from 0 8 weeks during which small chicks (pullets) are kept separately from broilers. PHASE 2 (GROWERS): This period concerned is between 8 21 weeks of age. Growers are the future laying birds and the way they grow up will largely determine how well they do in the laying house. Therefore management during the growing period is very important. PHASE 3 (LAYERS): The laying period is taken to have started when the birds reach 5% egg production on a daily basis. The laying period continues until the birds are sold at the end of a laying period of normal length or are force mounted Housing time starts with the beginning of the laying period. The number of birds housed is the number of pullet in the laying house when egg production starts.
