Ghazipur mandi is said to be Asia’s largest chicken market.

Nawab Ali, president of the UP Egg Association, says, “A hen or hen should have 100 to 125 grams of grain daily. If you do not give so much grain, then its weight will start to decrease. Bazar and maize are given as a grain. According to the market MSP of Bajra MSP, the corn is only above 1800 rupees. “
Anil Shakya, owner of a farm that knows poultry, says, “Even if the eggs are not sold, the poultry owner suffers for 10-15 days. But chicken cannot be fed for more than 4-5 days. Because in the market from 900 grams to 2500 grams of cock is sold. Now there is no benefit in feeding them granules by keeping them in the vines, as they will gain weight. And a cock weighing more than 1750 grams is rarely sold. If there is no bird flu in the chicken, then they should be allowed to sell it, and if it is there, then the administration should get them finished. Otherwise we will have to finish after 4-5 days. “
Egg, cheap due to effect of bird flu, rate reached 3 rupees, check retlist
Another poultry expert Rajesh Rajput said, “The same happened during the corona-lockdown.” There was no mention of coronation in the chickens. But the sale of egg and chicken was stopped. How long did the grains feed at home, so the live chickens and eggs were buried in the ground. ”
Jamil, who is doing business in Ghazipur Mandi by the name of Rachna Poultry, said that today we are going to meet Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia about some of our similar problems.
