Increased consumption of poultry products in Nigeria is occurring alongside rapid urbanization and growth in the industry. We use a panel data double-hurdle model to consistently identify key factors affecting engagement in the Nigerian subsector by various actors. Our analysis reveals that there is active engagement in the Nigerian poultry sub sector by a much broader set of actors than traditionally perceived. There is also a huge data gap in appropriate field survey data on the poultry value chain in Nigeria.
