- FOWL BREEDING AS BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY: PART IV - PRODUCTION PLANNING FOR A MEDIUM SCALE POULTRY BREEDING OPERATION

In spite of the unfair competition exercised by import from Europe, there are opportunities throughout the continent to establish chicken breeding companies to cater for national demands provided that operators take necessary managerial and production decisions to control costs of production.

To establish the breeding stock, one needs to purchase "one" day old Baby chicks, which are fragile animals. You may acquire Robert Plamondon's book titled: Success with baby chick that provides all information for a successful breeding operation. This website also provide information and sell baby chicks. And this one gives an idea of the cost of purchasing "one" day or baby chicks. French speaking people may found useful information on an existing operation right here.

In a previous delivery, briefs were outlined about chicken breeds suitable for tropical areas

- ORGANIZATION OF THE PRODUCTION FOR A MEDIUM SCALE OPERATION


An efficient chicken breeding operation in any African country cannot be specialized in a unique production like in developed countries where operations use to breed either only broilers or layers. An operation that intends to supply an African community should cover the whole demand of the population that is to provide broilers and eggs, which means that the operation should breed a mixture of broilers and layers.

The operation here exposed will then produce: 1- Broilers weighting in average 2 kg ; 2- Reformed Layers that weight in average 2,5 kg and 3- Big and small caliber Eggs. Here you can read more about the breeding period from Baby Chick to Fat chicken ready for slaughterhouse.

The breeding operation should be organized to have a regular output of eggs. Therefore, due to the egg laying period of 12 months, it is compulsory to introduce a batch of Layer Baby Chicks every six months into the breeding operation.

Therefore, an efficient breeding process could be organized as follows: a) The introduction of a batch of 10,000 Baby Broilers chicks every 3 months. b) The initial introduction of a batch of 10,240 Baby Layers chicks. c) The introduction - every 6 months - of a batch of 5,120 Baby Layers chicks. Table below is more explicit:

Months123456789101112131415161718
Baby Broiler Chicks10,000-10,000--10,000--10,000--10,000--10,000--10,000
Broilers for sale--10,000--10,000--10,000--10,000--10,000--10,000
Baby Layers Chicks10,240----5,120-----5,120-----5,120
Laying Birds ------10,24010,24010,24010,24010,24015,36015,36015,36015,36015,36015,36020,480

The production level standing at 60,000 broilers (from Baby Broilers chicks) over 18 months of operation, in addition to [10,240 X 270 days (assuming 75% yield)] = 3, 686,400 eggs or 12,901 metric tons of eggs - assuming that each egg weights in average 3.5 gr.

Please remark that at the beginning of the 19th month, the number of laying birds will dwindle to 10,240 units as Layers had performed the 12 months' laying cycle and should be reformed as Broilers.

In next delivery we shall consider investment needed to set up a medium scale chicken breeding operation that produce broilers and eggs and deliver up to 50,000 birds per year.
