Data were collected randomly from 80 respondents.  Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, efficiency model and gross margin analysis. The result showed that 61.25% of the respondents were male, 53.75% fall between 26-30 years of age,63.75% were married,33.75% has the household size of 1-3 persons. 58.75% had secondary education and 48.75% had farming experience of 1-3 years, The study also revealed that the utilization of the investigated input factors was inefficient with the ratio of MVP to MFC is being less than unity for all the included inputs.  The resources in the farm were over utilized include; flock size, feed, brooding and housing, labor and medication. The total revenue obtained  was ₦231,820.64, with total cost of ₦105,191.14, Gross margin of 128,402.39 while net farm income was ₦126,629.5 and return per Naira invested of ₦1.17 which shows viability of the business.
