Chicken Manure

When you think of manure the first thing to put in mind is a bad smelly thing. Actually, years ago I knew that chicken manure is a good fertilizer in plants, vegetables and even in flowers. Nowadays chicken manure is a part of the business industry. Mostly the chicken farm owners are selling the manures at forty pesos per sack and the agent sells it to the buyer at seventy pesos per sack. The average of one truck load comes up to six hundred sacks. The buyer sells it ranging from ninety to one hundred ten pesos per sack to the consumers or the one who planted plants and vegetables, depending on the quality of the manure. In Lipa, Batangas a lot of chicken poultry raisers are practicing that, in order to lessen the expenses of the feeds. According to the agent who interviewed in the television, their net income is 90,000php to 110,000php per month. It depends on the manure sacks acquired. It's not an easy business but the fact is, they earn from it and have a better living.
