The fake broiler story takes number 9.The fake broiler story came out on Zbc Tv on 1 December and immediately went viral on the social media platforms. The story revealed an uncovering of a fraudster in Bulawayo who had sold 8000 fake broiler chicks to unsuspecting customers. A suspected conman Amadi Nyathi from old suburb of Mzilikazi in Bulawayo had duped chicken farmers in Bulawayo by selling them fake broiler chicks.Whilst the story was highly informative and relevant, the description by Bulawayo deputy police spokesperson was highly humorous and informative at the same time.
At four weeks the broiler chicks still look like three day old chicks weighing 80 grammes instead of 1.5kg.
These chicks exhibit strange traits than those of common broilers.
They over feed, but do not grow, fight like wild birds and run away from human beings.
With the way they behave one can conclude that once they are taken out of the fowl run, these chicks can survive in the bush on their own.
