1.1 BACKGROUND INFORMATION OF ALPHA POULTRY FARM
The Alpha poultry farm was established in 1995 by chief P.I Emesim A West African school certificate holders. The establishment was as a result of his personal interest in animal husbandry and an urge for financial independence when asked how he came about his poultry farm chief Emesim said he had to carry out a feasibility study on already established poultry farm which he got on estimate on what it would cost him to establish his .
The initial estimate for both capital and re-curing assets were fixed at N73,00 which late amounted to N98,190.00 due to inflation.
The farm is located at Emene which is some is meters away from the owners residential location. This location was chosen in view of its nearness to his home so that he can have more time for the birds since its operations are being managed by his and his family (ie his wife). In other words chief Emesim did not engage paid labour in his chicken rearing business so as to reduce the cost of production.
The feeding of the birds is internally and externally sources. Internally in that they manufacture the feed themselves at time using the following raw material: maize dust, crayfish, salt, binomial periwinkle, kernel meal, in size- 0.75 these are chemicals added to the raw materials to manufacture the feed and the quantity given are enough to make 20 bags of feeds external source of feeding refers to the supplies of bags of feeds from the supplier.
The need for internal souring is because it is chapter though time wasting to ensure adequate nutrition content in the feeds and makes up for periods of late delivery from the supplier the feeds are categorized according to the types of birds e.g grass mash for layers finisher for broiler and grower for turkey.
In caring for the birds the owner changes the sawdust every week disinfects the environment with 12 every day and ensures that only the special shoes meant for the farm is what is being worm into the poultry to avoid diseases. There is also a medical check carried out on the birds by a veterinary doctor (Dr Moses) twice a week and he is also being called upon when there is a case of emergency.
