Before i analyze the potential profit of this business, let us know the advantages and uses of eggs.

Eggs are high in cholesterol and this makes it a perfect diet for growing children. It can reduce risk of many diseases, it supplies quality protein to the body, it is rich in vitamin A and this helps healthy eyesight, it contains choline and this is used to build cell membranes which helps in producing molecules in the brain.

Depending on any size of egg you choose to buy, you will gain profit of N100 ($0.63)  on a crate of egg if you sell as a whole seller but if you choose to sell as retailer you can have profit of N300 ($1.9) on a crate. If you restrict yourself to selling just 100 crates of eggs weekly, that means you will be realizing profit of N10,000 ($62) weekly and this is just N40, 000 ($250) monthly.

This is how you determine your profit. Setting a target to sell 1,000 crates of egg per week will mean you will realize  100 x 1,000 = N100,000 ($628) weekly, multiply this per month, that is a whooping sum of N400,000 ($2500) profit monthly. If you deduct your monthly expenses from this amount am very sure you will still have a reasonable amount to save.

Locating Your Target Market

Picking up eggs from farms is not a problem, your target market is what matters to you. Your target should be the highly populated environment. It could be markets any where, the mobility aspect makes you spread your distribution process all around. Once you know where and whom to distribute your eggs to, you will only need to go there directly.
For Example Let me give you guys one of my marketing strategy i use... This simple strategy is still my best. When i started, i wrote proposals to 40 different secondary schools in my state telling them i will be supplying their teachers 2 creates of egg monthly and i will be collecting the money by month end... To my sup-rice, 33 schools accepted my proposal and since then i supply them eggs. This also gave me the chance to sell my birds without stress...  With this 1 strategy, i supply over 1000 creates or eggs monthly.

Where To Get Eggs From

To start buying and selling eggs, you must locate two or more farms depending on what capacity you want to work on, a poultry farm is where you can pick up eggs for sale. Before you can start picking eggs from farms, you must be a registered customer with the farm, and you must be consistent there, meaning you have to always pick up eggs weekly.

Working Tools

This is not compulsory but egg business is more profitable when you make it a mobile business. Purpose of this is to make you distribute your eggs conveniently to your customers. Most shop owners usually feel too comfortable once they are seated in their shops, and so they feel reluctant to go to farms in order to pick eggs and also they consider the number of cracked eggs they will realize picking eggs directly from farm on their own. This is why being mobile is important in egg business.

Other Working Tools

The basic tool needed for this business is empty crates, it could be paper crates or plastic crates. You can buy crates of 100 pieces at N10,000 or N5,000 if you choose to buy the paper crates , the total number you will need to run your business now depends on you. Note that the paper crates are more protective to your eggs, it reduces the number of cracks you will realize from transferring your eggs, and it's cheaper as well but damages more quickly than the plastic ones.

Cost Of Starting The Business

Cost of acquiring a used vehicle constitutes almost 90% of your capital needed in this business. Once you are mobile, the only cost you will need to run this business for a start is N80,000, with this amount you can buy 130  crates of eggs. A crate of egg can cost N600 or less  from farm depending on the size you choose to buy, any balance left will be incurred on fueling your vehicle and other road expenses. Buying and selling eggs might look odd to you but concentrate on how profitable it is and stop waiting for gainful employment in that oil and gas company that may not come until when your responsibilities are enormous. Keep yourself busy and be productive.
