Price of chicken

Krishneel Chand, Field Forty, Lautoka
Tuesday, February 21, 2017

Chicken, the most eaten meat in Fiji, when asking neighbours, friends, and other relatives, the most common answer I get is chicken, cooked in various ways and methods, from the iTaukei people cooking it in coconut milk, roast and the Fijians of Indian descent making chicken curry and many ways.

But the increase in chicken demand has also increased the price of chicken.

A few months ago I brought some chicks to breed at home as this would be a sustainable way to have a constant supply of meat and a frequent supply of eggs, so at the end of the day money will be saved. In order to start, some investment is mandatory.

I urge people to do some backyard farming so at the end of the day, your health will be better and you will also be able to save money and get a fresh supply of whatever you do in the back yard from breeding chickens, ducks, or planting vegetables.

It is a "gain" deal at the end of the day.
