Price List: Cost of Poultry Feed in Nigeria 2021

Ever wondered how much 1 bag of Poultry feed now costs in the regional markets? The truth is that the cost of feeding for both man and animals is on the hike everyday, the more reason why you need to stay up to date with BetaPrices daily price updates. Notwithstanding, many farms in Nigeria raise and sell their broilers in just 6 weeks because they use good feed to ensure their birds are fed very well.

Proper feeding of poultry birds will quickly enhance their growth rate and give them meaningful weight. In feeding of broilers, it’s always advisable to put on light for them in the night and ensure they eat 24 hrs 7 days every week if you want them to grow faster and sell them at 6 weeks old. You can equally make use of Super grow if you want to get the best of results.

Generally, based on experience, the  best poultry feed today is Ultima. But New Hope Professional feed is the best poultry feed for broilers in Nigeria. If you cannot afford them, you may order for feed supply from other brands at cheaper rates. For layers, the best layers mash is New Hope feed. I have used it for long now. One good thing about the feed is that it ensures uniform growth of your birds.

The quantity of feed a chicken needs per day depends heavily on the age. As the day progresses, Layers or Broiler feed intake increases. For example, currently a Broiler eats approximately 1.2kg of starter from week 1 to week 4 and gains about 1.5 body weight. Then from week 5 to week 9, it’ll consume about 8.5kg of finisher feed and gains approximately about 4.5kg body weight. You can achieve better results by giving your birds pelleted feeds. The price of pellet poultry feeds and mash poultry feeds are all same irrespective of the company or brand.

How to use dry Pawpaw leaves to increase poultry broiler weight to 3kg from 6 weeks

Poultry Weight enhancer with dry Pawpaw leaf

It’s very rare to get this excellent result without a secret. Let me reveal that secret to you now. Do you know that protein increases the weight of birds? I’m not saying you should start spending money in buying expensive protein supplements like Fish meal etc. There’s something that is very common yet contains about 60% protein and increases the weight of the birds by more than 70% if properly used. That thing is dry Pawpaw leaves. Pawpaw leafs when dry, contains about 60% protein. All you need to do is to crush it into powder and mix 100 grams of it with a bag (25kg) of poultry feed, and your birds are good to go.
