The poultry sector, which mainly includes the production of chicken meat and eggs, is one of the fast-growing agricultural sub-sectors in Ethiopia, a new study.

According to a new study conducted by Precise Consult and its partners, the key challenges with the highest impact on smallholder poultry production productivity are inefficient incubation caused by inconsistent electricity supply, decreased productivity due to intermittent lighting and heating, and the absence of cold storage services for poultry products.

  • Backyard poultry production systems account for 89% of the total chicken population.
  • The large-scale poultry production system accounts for 3% of the total chicken population in the country.
