Rev. Daniel Adabanka, a pastor and entrepreneur who is also the Chief Executive Officer of Adabanka farms has revealed that, one needs a minimum of GHc150,000 before he can rear 1000 chicks till they can lay eggs in 6 months time. He revealed this during the maiden interview of the Wundef Show which was hosted by Charles Wundengba.

“…to cut everything short, the cost of a chick is GHc7.50 and to raise 1000 birds till they lay eggs in 6 months time, you will need GHc150,000”, he said in the interview.

He further explained when asked by the host why the cost is so high, he explained that it is due to the feeding.

“Currently, one bag of maize is around GHc230 and GHc240 and one tonne of (poultry) feed costs GHc2000. If you have two thousand of 22 weeks old birds, you will need 300 kilos of feeds a day and the birds can finish that in 3 days”, he added.
