System of keeping
1 pair of a pigeon in natural way of breeding
produces 5 clutches per year.
In foster farming 1 valuable pair produces 3060 eggs per year from which if 30 chicks are
obtained. Then this new technique in fancy bird
farming .Breeder pair value is increased by using
foster parents. By transferring the eggs.
This employees that we can increase our
production to 3X

Economy and market of birds


Big favor to Pakistani cage breeders is that the all
varieties of birds are very much adaptable to climatic
conditions of Pakistan.
Whereas the cost production on their production is
cheapest as we are having huge recourses of feed for
them as well as men power interested in it.

Import
In the survey report of Karachi about 8 parties
are engaged in importing the valuable birds. 1
shipment costs about 30-40 laces.
Average shows about 8 shipments are imported
which is about 1,92,000,00. these birds are then
breed here and produces new variety.
In 1 year it reaches to 23,04,000,00

Export
These new mutated and birds are exported ,
much more demanded and exported with good
profit in international market.
There are 5 exporters in Karachi they export @
10 million rupees per month on fancy birds.
This is the only business in Pakistan that gives
more profit with least input.
120 million.
