Had to create this topic here as the business board seems to be a bit too busy for this, So I am contemplating on starting a poultry business In Nigeria but I am at crossroads as the business models I have come across appears to be too good to be true, the poultry business seems to be extremely profitable venture but I have failed to completely understand the risks of this business (aside from all the chicken dying?), I know there are some knowledgebible people around that would like to share their wisdom and experiences on the risks of this type of business in Nigeria?

When it comes to fufu, gari, or just food in general, there's no risks at all,,,,I support you 100% and I know you will not fail, because Nigerian like to eat well well,,,But, the problem is the cost of feeding your chicks to make them grow fast fast to start selling them, that's where your money will go (vitamins, veterinary, etc) but within weeks the money will start flowing back into your pockets....there's less cost in grazing animal...grass plenty inside 9ja....take goat

poultry business, though very profitable ,, still need  professional expertise,, to be able to sail through,, it all depends on the scale you want it,, there is intensive , semi-intensive, free range or extensive poultry system,, you have to consider the number of birds  you want to start with,, the breeds of the birds you want,,, be it black leghorn,,rhode island red, white sussex,rhode island white, new hampshire and so, you consider the age of the birds ,, day old chicks usually require more efforts to survive, than few weeks old,,poultry birds require regulated temperature depending on their age and the season of the year,, you consider the type of feed you want depending on the type, age and the purpose of the birds,,, if its for mainly for meat production, growers marsh or broilers marsh would be suitable,if its for egg production(layers) its different cos content of certain minerals would have to be higher in the feed as related to eggshell production,, compounding the feed is something  else again, cos it sometime has to do with the breeds, age, of the birds, and temperature of the environment,, for certain exotic breeds of birds certain supplements are needed,, overfeeding  the birds would make you run at a loss, while underfeeding can cause death through pecking, and starving,,even as you must always debeak at the appropriate time,, a specialist in avian medicine would always be at hand to prevent any outbreak of disease(s),, whenever a death occurs the best thing is to call in an avian medicine specialist, not minding the cost, to carry out a necropsy, and prevent further deaths,,,, i know you need more than all i have stated,,but i wish you the best of luck in your venture,,,,
