Eteicon Farm is a large-scale production operation for table eggs and chicken meat. Eggs and chicken meat serve as a daily source of protein on the dining tables of over 5 million people in our country and they are also a source of income to many young agropreneurs.
We also breed purebred chicks of the Gallus domesticus species commonly known as ‘layers’ for other young farmers who want to start a poultry farm in their backyards or as a small-scale line of business.
When we see little children in my community who are malnourished because of lack of protein in their diet, I feel very challenged. Because of this problem, Eteicon Farm makes sure to provide at least one egg daily to each kindergarten and nursery school child at their schools through our One-Egg-One-Child-daily project.
In 2012, Eteicon Farm won a business plan competition organised by the federal government of Nigeria called Youth Enterprise with Innovation in Nigeria (YOUWIN) under the ‘Idea Category’. With the resulting seed fund we were able to establish Eteicon Farm.
When our farm was completed and stocked in 2014, we had only 200 birds (layers). When they matured, they were laying only 10 crates of eggs daily. Now, we have 3,000 laying birds and we harvest 45-50 crates of eggs daily.
Sometimes we get support for feed from some charity organisations in our community. With this support we feed our birds to produce more eggs which we then supply to nursery schools and kindergarten centres in our community for their daily consumption. Thus we help to advocate the policy of One-Egg-One-Child-daily.
