A simple random sampling technique was used to collect the data. Statistical techniques like means, comparison of means and frequency distribution was used for production cost and yield analysis.  On an average total fixed cost was 51000.00 Af labour input cost includes 83000.00 Af on an average per farm poultry farmer spent labour cost of production.  This included 5000.00 Af on Supervision (weekly visit), Electrician (when problem) 2000.00 Af Feedings 20000.00 Af Cleaning 20000.00 Af Watchmen 25000.00 Af Drinkers 11000.00 Af and Spraying (weekly spray) 3000.00 Af respectively.
