Express your answer in units of kWh/d.

Chickens require 0.075 kWh per day of energy (as feed) for each kilogram of animal, and 2/3 of an adult chicken is edible meat. The lifespan of a chicken is 50 days.

What is the daily energy requirement needed to sustain the livestock for consumption of 0.25 kg of chicken meat per day? Express your answer in units of kWh/d.
