Types Of Chicken That Can Make You A Millionaire In Kenya

Poultry farming involves raising birds for meat, eggs, or both. Farmers in Kenya raise improved Kienyeji, indigenous Kienyeji, layers, and broilers.

Each bird has its own set of benefits and drawbacks, and we' ll go over them all so you can decide which one is the most profitable.

1. Broiler chickens are raised for meat, and a farmer must start with at least 100 chicks to be profitable. They require a lot of attention, and poor management can result in the loss of the entire flock.

Broilers develop in 42 days and are heavy feeders, therefore a farmer must first find a market for them before getting into this industry. They require a lot of fresh water and fresh air, as well as high- quality food, to reach an average live weight of 2 kg at maturity.

2. Improved Kienyeji, which are raised for meat and birds and mature at 6 months of age. Rainbow roaster, Kroiler, and Karlo enhanced chicken are examples of improved Kienyeji.

The benefit of growing these birds is that they are disease- resistant and more marketable.

They are not heavy feeders and may be raised freely on the farm; they lay high- quality eggs and produce high- quality meat. Improved Kienyeji also necessitates careful care and strict vaccination when they are young.

3. Layers: These are birds that are primarily raised for the purpose of laying eggs; they are not heavy feeders and, when properly managed, can earn a lot of money for the client. A farmer starts with 100 chicks, but in order to break even, he or she must keep 500 or more chicks.

They can lay up to 80% of the time, which means that if you have 100 chicks, you' ll get around 80 eggs per day. To repay you, they need high- quality food. Cold weather has an effect on them, as they lay less eggs during that season.

4. Kienyeji are indigenous to Kenya and are raised for meat and eggs. They are disease resistant and require little effort to raise. They produce high- quality eggs that command the greatest market price. They do, however, take too long to mature and lay fewer eggs than other breeds. They are also self- sufficient and do not require a lot of food.

As a result, all birds have advantages and disadvantages; choose the one you want to keep and get started right away. In general, any bird can make you a millionaire; the key is to start with at least 100 chicks, supply excellent food and clean water to your birds, vaccinate and cure sick ones as soon as you detect them, and source for market before entering the poultry farming business
