This study assessed the determinants of women’s participation in poultry production in Toro local government area of Bauchi state, Nigeria.  Primary and secondary data were used for the study. The data obtained were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The study revealed that many (43%) of the respondents was married. Majority (76.6%) were within the age range of less than 30- 40 years with a high proportion (53.4%) having no formal education. The major motivational factors influencing the women’s’ participation in poultry production include income (28.3%) and leisure (16.7%). The main constraints faced by women were costs of feeds (23%), poor access to change agents (18.8%), and poor management skill (17.1%). The result of the correlation analysis shows that the variables marital status(r=0.341; p≤ 0.01) and access to credit (r=0.285;p≤ 0.05) had significant relationship with the level of participation of women in poultry production. Based on the result, it was recommended that poultry production should be supported by the government through provision of credit and loan facilities with low interest rates so that the women can overcome the problem of low capital base. There is also a need to ensure access to improved breeds that thrive well given the hot climatic condition prevalent in the study area. 

Keywords:  Women, Poultry production, Participation, Determining factors.
