How is your idea unique?

1.ASIDES PRODUCING EGGS AND CHICKENS ALL YEAR ROUND, WE PRODUCE SPECIAL POULTRY FEED THAT IS ENRICHED WITH MORINGA, DRIED PAWPAW LEAVES AND OTHER LOCAL LEAF MEALS. THIS HAS PROVEN TO SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE THE NUTRITIONAL CONTENT AND IMMUNITY OF OUR POULTRY BIRDS. 2.CHICKENS BOUGHT FROM OUR FARM CAN BE PROCESSED IMMEDIATELY WITHIN FIVE-MINUTES BY THE USE OF OUR DEFEATHERING MACHINE. THE PROCESSED CHICKENS ARE ATTRACTIVELY PACKAGED FOR OUR CUSTOMERS. NO POULTRY FARM WITHIN OUR CATCHMENT-AREA PROVIDES THIS KIND OF SERVICE. 3.WE FURTHER PROCESS OUR POULTRY DROPPINGS INTO PELLETED COMPOST THAT DOES NOT SMELL AND SOLD TO VEGETABLE FARMERS AROUND AS MANURES/FERTILIZERS. WE ALSO CONNECT FARMERS TO EXISTING MARKETS.
