Abstract: This study determined the input-output relationship and cost and return in egg production in Kaduna state. Primary data were collected from 225 egg producers drawn from the study area by a simple random sampling technique. Data was analysed by the use of descriptive statistics, multiple regression, cost and return analysis. The total cost of production was N206, 610. 44 per 100 layers and net farm income was N208, 079. 75. The return per Naira invested was N1.01. Feed cost accounted for 69% of the total cost of egg production. The regression result revealed that all the parameters estimated except labour (-0.742) carry positive sign. This implied that flock size (1.287), feed (0.911) and medication cost (0.305) have direct relationship with the farmer’s egg output. The t-ratios showed that flock size, and feed were significant at 5% and 10% level of significance respectively. To improve profitability, better management practices should be implemented to minimize incidence of disease outbreaks; feed should be formulated locally to reduce feed cost.
