Most of the customers of chicks are from Natmauk and Pyawbwe townships.

The people living in Kan Gyi Ward of Natmauk Township in the Magway Region operate manageable scale poultry farming.
“We breed about 100 native chickens at our poultry farm. We put the eggs in the incubators for 21 days. Then, the newly born chicks receive the vaccine as soon as they are taken out of the machine. They are also placed in a room with the required temperature for 21 days and vaccinated against new castle disease. We get K1,800 per normal chicken and K8,000 per broiler chicken. We feed them broken rice, corn and bran three times a day. We also use watercress and Brachiaria grass as their feed. The poultry farming industry makes a profit for us,” said a poultry farmer from Kan Gyi Ward.
