Chicken and egg production via the process of raising poultry layer and broilers breeding, from Point Of Lay (POL) feeding ;medication and sales. 1000 POL birds for the purpose of producing eggs and 1000 POL birds for the production of broilers. 500 POL birds for the first 10 days after the construction and then 500 birds after 10 days for the production of 500 chicken every 10 days after the first 45 days of creation. The farm should produce 1000 matured chicken , about 10 000 eggs every 10 days (from the first 45 days after the creation), in the year of creation then, we'll increasing the number thereafter (i.e. 20 000 eggs and 2000 matured chicken every 10 days) for three years and then upgrade to the level of Egg production (Layers breeding),Meat production (Broilers breeding), Chicken breeding (Hatchery), Turkey production and their storage facilities.
Egg production is the most popular form of poultry farming because egg consumption rise across the world. Poultry production come in different forms ranging from parent stock breeder meat (broiler/production), egg production, Quail production, turkey production, ostrich farming, duck farming, Geese farming and ornamental bird rearing. The business could also come in specialization such as brooding, Point of Lay production, liquid egg package, egg trading, cold room marketing, day old chicks, feed milling, birds transportation or egg deport business. Because of the vastness of this industry, entrepreneurs focus will be on an aspect and with time add other aspect either for vertical or horizontal integration. In Cote d'Ivoire, this industry is still grossly untapped and any part of the industrial possess great potential. Specialization and continuous improvement on skills is always paramount.
Poultry industry is known to be a profitable business because of its consumption worldwide . The major hindrances to the growth of this business in Cote d'Ivoire ranges from high interest rates loans or credit, high cost of maize, unavailable electricity in farms (rural area) which is important for cold rooms, incubators and operation of automated cages. Because of the fallow nature of this industry in Cote d'Ivoire, the prospect is high. Right now the demand for eggs, broiler meat, day old chicks remain overwhelmingly high..
This project is to build a small mechanized poultry farm that is efficient and rewarding at end to produce nutritious eggs and chicken, to create employment and wealth for investor (this business owner).
a) Egg production
b) Chicken production
a) Egg productions
We noticed that egg production is insufficient in Cote d'Ivoire markets because of the high consumption of this product, so producing more eggs will satisfy the needs on eggs' production market. b) Chicken production
Nowadays Cote d'Ivoire meat markets demands for more chickens in substitute for bush meat and to replace the fowls' meat come from neighboring countries. We know that producing chicken will be a great satisfaction for the meat markets.
