A broiler chicken is a type of chicken that has been specifically bred for meat production. These chickens are usually raised in large poultry houses and are provided with a balanced diet and proper care to ensure they grow quickly and efficiently.
Unlike layer chickens, which are bred for egg production, broiler chickens are generally raised for their meat, which is usually sold as whole birds or processed into various chicken products such as chicken breasts, wings, and legs.
The meat of broiler chickens is popular for its tenderness and flavor, making it a staple in many households around the world.
The price of broiler chicken in Kenya is usually quoted in Kenyan Shillings (KES) per kilogram. The current average price per kilogram of broiler chicken in Kenya is around KES 300-500.
However, the exact price can vary depending on factors such as the time of year, the demand for chicken, and the cost of production.
It’s always best to check with local poultry farms or markets for the most up-to-date pricing information.
