Abstract

Using basic statistics and a simple gross margin analysis procedure, it was established that commercial table egg production in Lagos State is profitable. Under the same assumption and based on available statistics, the gross margin for q commercial table egg producer with 1000 laying birds has increased from ~975,000.00 in 1998 to ~1, 050,000.00 in 2005, representing an increase of7. 7 pe:cent. The demand for poultry products is expected to grow in view of increase in per capita income, increased awareness of the health implications of inadequate intake of protein in the human diet and the outbreak of avian influenza in Asia. Thus, increased production of table egg under the presidential initiative should be sustained.
