**Cost of producing a chick** is very important either economically and business perspective, most people do not know how to calculate the cost of producing a chick. Today i will teach how you can calculate it.

All figures used in calculation are supposition,

### Cost of Producing a Chick:

Total Feed Intake of a broiler Breeder female is **60 kg.**

Cost Per Kg of feed = **Rs. 40/-**

Total Feed Cost per female = **60*40 = Rs. 2400/-**

Feed is **70%** of total Cost hence,

Total Cost of per female is = **2400*100/70 = 3428**

**Total cost of a female **=** ****3428**

- Assume for each ten fertile females we need a male Then Male cost is 10% of female cost.

So, Male cost per female = 10%(3428) **Rs. 343 per female**

**S****o cost of a fertile female= 343+3428 ****= 3771**

**Total Eggs Produced by a female = 180****Total Chicks Produced by a female = 140**

**Cost per egg = 3771/180 = 21**

**Cost per chick = 3771/140 = 27**

Cost is 27 rupees.
