Disease prevention in poultry is achieved by these four(4) main measures;
1. Proper Vaccination program
2. Biosecurity
3. Feeding
4. Management.
Let's discuss vaccination in Layers today. From day 1 to week 17. You can help retweet this thread to help someone.
Let's go my peeps.
I will use three parameters(Age, Vaccination Against (VA)(the disease we are vaccinating against) and Route(the place where the vaccine is administered through).
AGE - Day 1
VA - Marek's Disease
Route - Under Skin(Given at the hatchery). Please make sure you ask or see that
your DOCs are vaccinated.

AGE: Day 9-14
VA : Newcastle Disease(NVD), Infectious Bronchitis(IBV)
Route : Drinking water/eye drop, Drinking water.

AGE : Day 14
VA : Gumboro/Infectious Bursal Disease(IBDV)
Route: Drinking water

AGE: Day 28
VA : Gumboro/Infectious Bursal Disease
Route : Drinking water

AGE: week 4
VA : Newcastle Disease(NDV), Infectious Bronchitis(IBV)
Route : Drinking water or eye drop, Drinking water

AGE: Week 8
VA : Fowl pox, Avian Encephalomyelitis(AE)
Route : Wing web jab
Note that AE can also be vaccinated against 4 weeks before
birds starts to lay.

AGE: Week 9
VA: Infectious Coryza 1
Route: Intramuscular

AGE : Week 10-11
VA : NDV (Komaruv Strain)

Route: Intramuscular, Drinking water

AGE : Week 16
VA: Laryngotracheitis
Route: Spray or eye drop

AGE : Week 17
VA : ND + IB + EDS(3 in 1)

It is important to state that the services of a VET is required in most cases. Do not vaccinate birds whenever they are sick. Treat the sickness first, you can then
vaccinate later. Don't allow "witches and wizards" in your village take blame for your negligence oo. They have their "eleda" too😆 😆. Drop a comment if you appreciate this. Enjoy the rest of your day.

Basic things you need to know before starting poultry business(Part 2). Like I said, this period might not be the best time to start the business due to the high cost of feed ingredients. Knowledge is important and this is what I have pledged to do.
Let's go!
Thread 👇👇👇
It is true you want to start poultry business but knowing the type of production you want to venture in is important. Commercial layers(for table sized eggs), broilers(for meat), cockerels(for meat also), breeders(for chicks production). The question is which one should I start
with? The answer will determine a whole lot. Capital is dependent on the type of production likewise housing(pen). The design for battery cage system pen is not the same as deep litters. Many make this mistake and are full of regrets in the end. Let's know what we are doing oo.

I must say that this period is one of the toughest periods for poultry farmers due to the high cost of feed ingredients especially maize. This will never stop people from frying eggs, baking cakes, making egg rolls and even eating noodles with boiled or fried eggs. Yes! Profit
margin might be slim right now but the truth still remains that knowledge is needed in this business to avoid "shalaye".Even if you don't want to start now, you can still save this tweet for future references.

In 2010, I received a phone call from one of my bosses; a reputable veterinarian."I have a job for you and I know that you are capable. I want you to be an undercover assistant manager of one breeders farm."😳😳. A retweet will help someone learn.
Thread👇👇 @BashorunGa_
Let me start by saying the pay was juicy😜😜. A young, brilliant and resourceful professional came home from Yankee to set up a breeders farm and made his younger brother who studied Agriculture the farm manager. Apparently the FM(farm manager) did the whole farm setup. The capac
capacity of the farm was about 2,800 Abor Acre parent stock. After stocking the farm the owner returned to Yankee and was receiving reports from his blood brother. The FM was entrusted with fortune to manage. When the birds started laying and the fertilized eggs sent to the

Dear poultry farmers,
It will not be a bad idea to have sense ooo 😜😜. I had a terrible experience for two years with a popular market woman in Abeokuta with my birds🙆🙆.I feel the need to share it maybe someone might learn from it.
Oya let's go...
Thread👇👇 @BashorunGa_
For the sake of confidentiality I won't mention the name of the woman but she was a popular woman among poultry farmers in Abeokuta around 2004 -2008. She was popular to the level that a whole ANIMAL CARE would invite her for top-notch seminars. She didn't attend school but she
was educated whenever you talk about poultry. I am using "was" because I don't know if she is alive.This woman would go round every poultry in Ogun state to source for chickens because she was a chicken monger. I collected her number at a conference organized by ANIMAL CARE at

Broilers are heavy breed of chicken reared for the meat. Let me assume you want to start raising from DOC(day old chicks).
1.)Preparation: Broilers are good to be raised on the floor(ground) because of their body mass(weight). Clean the brooding pen and disinfect properly. Get Image
dry wood shavings(not sawdust ooooo) and spread. Wet wood shavings release chemicals that are detrimental to the chicks or even adult. Chicks often eat or pick shavings which carry certain fungi and mould that create problems.Wet shaving is a source of "Aspergillosis" in chicken. Image
