Ilonggo Farmer Finds 'Gold' In His Ready-To-Lay Hens

It might be already on his bloodline being a business-minded person when Benjamin Tan decided to raise ready-to-lay hens after resigning from the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR).
Tan was inspired to enter into business after visiting the office of the Department of Agriculture (DA) in Barangay Buntatala, Jaro, Iloilo City supposedly to inquire only about their agriculture and organic farming.

Tan is maintaining a backyard plantation of banana and papaya fruit trees in Barangay Buntatala, Leganes, Iloilo. He said raising chicken is much easier than farming.
As his starting capital investment, Tan spent P51,000 to buy 45 hens (lohman) worth P36,000 and construction of his cage worth P15,000.
The ready-to-lay hens are five-month old and 70 percent of the hens started laying eggs.
He said one hen can lay 21 eggs in just one month up to 16 months or 1 year and four month-old when reaching its maturity period.
