Broiler chickens are bred for rapid growth to reach maximum meat production but egg-laying chickens are bred for high production of the egg with the highest efficiency (Arthur and Albers, ). Some other factors such as disease and food intake efficiency are effective on the efficiency of poultry production.

() showed that the use of chestnut extract in poultry feeding does not influence feed digestibility, carcass quality or nitrogen balance. In fact, it has a positive influence in growth performance if included in the diet up to % (on dry matter). undesirable for meat production.

–These small bodies allow the bird to put more nutrients toward egg production instead of body size. •They are divided into two types: –Those that lay white or brown eggs.

Poultry production has assumed great importance in improving the employment opportunities and animal food production in Nigeria. The link between poultry animal production factors and poultry meat processing has not been studied in detail.

The effect of factors such as genotype, sex, age, diet and muscle type on meat processing capabilities such as post-mortem pH, soaked, cooked yield, texture and binding of whole and comminuted meat are reported here.

To determine the processing capabilities of the meat, various. Antibiotics have been included in the formulation of feed for livestock production for more than 40 years as a strategy to improve feed conversion rates and to reduce costs. The use of antimicrobials as growth-promoting factors (AGP) in sub-therapeutic doses for long periods is particularly favorable for the selection of antimicrobial resistant microorganisms.affecting the performance and health productivity of chicken include temperature, relative humidity, light, sunshine prevailing at a given time, housing system and ventilation (Elijah and Adedapo, ).

Ambient temperatures significantly influence the survivability and performance of the poultry production.
