PROFITABLE MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUE FOR RAISING BROILERS FROM DAY – OLD TO NINE WEEKS: A CASE STUDY OF, COLLEGE OF EDUCATION IKERE – EKITI FARM

ABSTRACT
This project work was designed
specifically to look into profitable management technique for raising broiler
chicks from day old to nine weeks old. 
This work was carried out in the College of Education
farm, Ikere.
Five day old chicks were purchased
from a reknown farm, Avian specialties, Ibadan.
These chicks were brooded
artificially in a made shift room with a clinical thermometer to regulate the
room temperature.
The chicks were later transferred
into a deep litter pen after twenty – one days, where they were raised to
market weight.
Litters were changed on a two –
weekly interval.  The chicks were fed
ablibitum on broiler starter for three weeks and broiler finisher for six weeks
respectively throughout the period of the experiment.
Vaccines and drugs were administered
on the chicks as soon as the need arose.
One mortality was recorded from the
population.  This represent 0.5 percent
of the population.  Forty – nine birds
were raised to an average market weight of 2.4 kilogram per bird.
From the study, if chicks are
purchased from a good source, and if the temperature generated at brooding
could be regulated, a degree suitable for the chicks, low mortality would be
recorded during brooding.
Also, if litters are properly managed
such that, there is no build – up of ammonia and no wet litters incidence of
diseases will not be rampant.
For these reasons, it is suggested
that better brooding facilities be made available by the government at
affordable prices, so that farmers who are not knowledgeable could make use of
the brooding pen.
It is suggested that farmers who can
not afford a build – up brooding pen should adopt this method as it gives a
good result.
Government should encourage the
funding of this project work on a larger scale so that it can become a practice
by all.

CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
          Poultry
can be defined as those species of livestock that render economic uses to human
being. Poultry, in one form or the other kept in most area of the world have
fewer religious or social taboos associated with them, as compared with pigs
and cattle.
          Poultry
are now a head of all livestock in economics, productive have increase
remarkably.
          The
consumption of animal per head in any population is greater in developed countries
and the contribution that poultry make to supply of animal protein vary from
one area to another.
          The
diet of the population in the tropical zone is most often protein – poor, both
in quantity and quality.
          In
Nigeria,
poultry is kept mainly for meat because poultry meat is most appreciated than
any other livestock meat it has taken an important place in the nutrition of
the human race.
          Poultry
is also kept for egg and to many local farmers in Nigeria poultry are kept as a
source of income and rarely for manure.
          Broiler
meat is preferred to beef because it contain high percentage of protein which
is the basic structural material from which all body tissue are formed.
          Protein
is essential for human growth and development as well as foetal development.
          Broiler
are domesticated birds kept purposely for the production of meat, it can also
be described as heavy and fast growing reared mainly for table meat.
          Broilers
require special attention in terms of management skill and up to date guide on
health.
Some of the wild species of fowls
from which the domestic fowl might have originated are listed below:
1)               
Gallus
lafayetti (Ceylonese jungle fowl).
2)               
Gallus
gallus, G. Bankiva or G. Ferrugineus (Red Jungle fowl).
3)               
Gallus
Sonneratti (Grey south west India
Jungle fowl).
4)               
G.
Varius, G. Furcatus Java, lombok (Black or green jungle fowl).
The need for the poultry farmers to
engage in large poultry production can not be over emphasized.
Firstly, keeping of poultry if well
manage is a very profitable business.
Oluyemi and Roberts (1979) emphasized
the importance of poultry as,
1)               
The
production of eggs and poultry meat are primarily food (protein food)
2)               
Eggs
are also used in various food industries
like the manufacture of confectionery.
They are also used for manufacturing cosmetics and for the production of
vaccines
3)               
Feathers
may be used for making pillows. Also for ornamental and decoration purposes.
4)               
Some
species of poultry are suitable for genetic, nutritional and physiological
studies because of their relatively low cost of maintenance.
5)               
It
serve as source of employment to many and
6)               
Poultry
manure is also becoming important for maintaining soil fertility and there by
increase crop productivity.
SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
          Having
gone through the economic values and the dietary purpose serve by poultry
generally it is very essential to study the management of Broiler chicks from
day old to nine (9) weeks of age at the college of education farms Ikere –
Ekiti.
          The
study will be of great importance to the college of community to identify the
method by which broilers could be reared for productive purpose
OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY
          In
this study attempts would be made at identifying the rearing methods for
broilers available at the college of education farms, Ikere – Ekiti. A close examination
of the broiler unit of the poultry section of college farm would be made with a
view to finding the rearing of broilers from day old to nine (9) weeks of age.
Problems encountered during rearing and ways of alleviating such problems.
          To
make policy recommendations towards the continuity of broiler rearing on the
college farm. Within this contract, the project has the following objectives;
a)                
To
find out the profit making in broiler business
b)               
To
make recommendations based on broiler rearing unit of the college of education
farms, Ikere – Ekiti.
c)                
To
recognize the particular breed of broiler chicks that will respond positive to
effective rearing methods.
LIMITATION OF THE STUDY
          To
carry out this study, the following are the limitation of the study,
          Firstly,
the duration of the study was short. Late delivery of the broiler chicks to be
used for the study.
