Prohibitive cost of production and laborious human involvement in poultry farms in the tropics could lead to low profit yield and low return on investment. Unfortunately, over-involvement of humans in the feeding system of poultry could lead to disease outbreak, undue fatigue and malnutrition of birds. These flaws in the poor feeding system of birds prompted this research work by developing an intelligent fuzzy logic based system that could mimic the roles of the poultry attendants in delivering water and feed dispensing for birds at specified time intervals. Water and feed level in the trough would be sensed by the designed system and dispense intelligently with respect to the variations in water and feed level as birds consume the feed and water. This system reduces workload of the poultry attendants, increases cost benefits and generates better return on investment in a deep litter poultry farming system
