A farm scale of L.E. 5,000 and the capacity of 10,000, 12,500 and 15,000 chicks of Nichols, Dokki 4 and Fayoumi chicks, respectively was subjected to an input-output analysis for maximum economical efficiency. The optimal feeding requirements for the three strains were achieved in the relevant experimental rations which cost L.E. 65, 40 and 35, respectively. The chicks reached the live weight of 1 kg. At 6, 10 and 12 weeks of age for the three strains respectively. However on total cost basis, the results obtained for the economical efficiency were reversed. It seems that one item such as the growth rate is not enough to judge the efficiency of poultry projects but all the items concerned with the production of a unit which cost less to produce
