Farms shut down because of small chicken size, not protest, says ministry


MELAKA: Several farms resorted to shutting down their operations for two days as they only have chickens of below standard sizes, says Melaka Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry director Norena Jaafar.

She said the move was not done as a sign of protest as alleged and that they had received notices of the closures, adding that when personnel found that the sizes of chickens were just around 1.1kg to 1.2kg, compared to 1.8kg to 2kg, and were not suitable for sale when they conducted an inspection of farms on Wednesday (May 18).
