Our refusal to settle for anything but the absolute best has been evident in all we do and that is why we as a farm are as self-sufficient as possible. We formulate, mix and mill our own feeds with zero preservatives added and we also rear our broilers in house and process them for consumption using a leased plant.
Our Birds are housed in coops/pens with open sides to ensure that to a large extent they are in their natural habitat. Our Awowo Farm settlement has a capacity of 200, 000 Birds (Layers) , 60, 000 Birds (Broilers), 40,000 parent stock of layers and broilers.
This section is solely responsible for the rearing of day old pullet chicks to point of laying commercial eggs for human consumption. We have over thirty thousand carrying capacity pens for the rearing phase. Also, we have specially constructed brooding house which is well equipped. This helps us to nurture the young chicks properly. We source our chicks from our hatchery which is provided with good quality hatchable eggs from our parent stock section. Day old pullet chicks are placed in the brooding room for proper intensive care of four weeks. They are then transferred to the rearing pens where they will continue to grow until they attain the point of lay weight. Matured point of lay birds are then transferred to our commercial layers’ section.
Considering the beneficial role an egg plays in human daily nutrient requirements, we employ modern equipment, skilled personnel and world standard techniques in rearing them to ensure our customers get high quality eggs they deserve.
