Livestock

Keeping of livestock was common in the area in the past. It was traditional for each household to keep goats, chicken and sheep. In modern times this practice has largely disappeared, resulting in shortage of livestock in the market. Livestock keeping is mostly handled by the women in the family, with the children help to supply the herbage. The goats or sheep are kept tethered in the house during the growing of the crops in the nearby farms in order to prevent the crops from being destroyed. Keeping of pigs is rare and is usually done by men who also keep the sheep. Cats are kept to drive away rats, while dogs are kept mainly to guard the household and for hunting. It is a taboo for people in the area to eat the meat of dogs or cats, although some of them now enjoy the dog meat.

 

The main types of domestic poultry kept by the Ikot Abasi people are chicken and ducks, the former being more common. Generally, the chicken are of local breed, with poor productive traits, like low egg production, small egg size, slow growth rate and poor feed conversion efficiency. The birds are let loose in the morning and, in the evening, they find their way back to the house.
