The poultry industry is a highly profitable business in Nigeria (Adebambo et al., 1999) and it is one area of animal production with significant contribution to human food production in egg and meat. Poultry products provide protein of high biological value (Epstein, 1990). Nigeria is endowed with many poultry species which are indigenous to the country and includes: the domestic fowl, pheasant, quail, guinea fowl, pigeon, turkey, goose and Muscovy ducks (Oluyemi and Roberts, 2007). These have lived, adapted and reproduced for several years in the Nigeria environment. Food and Agriculture Organization (2001) estimated poultry population in Nigeria to be about 33million.
