The current price of poultry/chicken feed in Nigeria per bag for layers and broilers has dropped by NGN3,000 to NGN 15,000 in the year 2022.

List of Poultry/Chicken Feed Manufacturers

There are many poultry feed manufacturers in Nigeria that provide quality feeds for both layers and broilers. 


Some of the more popular brands include Purina, Ijo chicken, and Big Mama. The price of poultry feed can vary depending on the manufacturer, but is typically around N1,500 per bag.  



With a standard layer’s ratio of 2-4kg per day, this translates to about N3,000-N6,000 per month. With this amount you will have enough to last you through 8 months at most because chickens do not need as much feed as other animals. For example, cows need 6 times the amount of feed needed by a chicken. 


If you are feeding them an average of 4 kg per day, then it would cost you approximately N24,000 or $325 every month! In addition to these costs is the purchase price of your chickens which averages around 10k-25k per head ($120-$300). 


When calculating the total monthly cost of your chicken farm, make sure to include the following: feed for 3-5 months ahead; hatchery fees; chicks or pullets; medicines and medications.

 It is difficult to give an accurate average price per bag as prices fluctuate depending on the season and location. Layers are more expensive than broilers because they require more food due to their slower growth rate. Some areas in Nigeria may have higher prices than others. 


For example, the Northeast region has higher prices due to its distance from other parts of the country where poultry farms are located. 


The national average for layer feeds is about ₦150-160, but in some cases it can be even higher. The national average for broiler feeds is about ₦130-140 per bag.

The cost of poultry feed is a major factor in the price of chicken meat. In Nigeria, the average price of a 50kg bag of poultry feed ranges from ₦2,500 to ₦3,500. The price of chicken feed is expected to rise in the next year due to the increasing cost of grains and soybeans. 


However, the price of chicken meat is not expected to increase significantly due to the large supply of chicken from local farmers. Furthermore, there are no export restrictions on Nigerian chicken so that the price will be determined by international market forces.
