The Programme Manager, Enugu State Agricultural Development Programme (ENADEP), Mr Onyema Nwodo, has advised poultry farmers to start preparing their chicken for Easter sales.

Nwodo told Nigeria News Agency in Enugu on Tuesday that the farmers should purchase their day-old broilers around third week of January for them to mature for sale in Easter.

The programme manager said that three months was enough to prepare very good broilers.

He said the advice became imperative because of the high demand for poultry products in the area during the Easter celebration.

“When you order birds like layers day-old chickens, you should order them early enough in January and get the best choice.

“And then you organise for the feed, save the money for it and then, if it is credit facilities you have to apply early enough’’ Nwodo said.

He added that some farmers in Enugu had also embraced cattle fattening, so they too should start rearing in August.
