👆👆Above is a Poultry Project I have been working on in Uganda. My business partner split his kitchen and built the housing for the chicken.
At first, we wanted to buy a day old chics (50) and layers (50). Well, that was my take.
However, when working on a project in Uganda, you need to trust Ugandans because they know the environment and needs on the ground.
So, my business partner decided to buy 50 Kroilers (3 weeks old).
Kroilers are hardy. Meaning they have a low mortality rate unlike chics which are Enzungu. Kroilers are a cross between our local breeds and Enzungu. My dear sister and friend Majjo introduced me to Kroilers in Uganda in 2015.
Now, what is fascinating is our supplier is caring for the Kroilers on his farm till they are 3 weeks old. Feathers formed. No heating lamps. Those babies will be around and about eating anything we give them.
We now have a supplier. We trust this guy. The price per chic is reasonable. Total cost = I still have no clue but it is manageable.
And you are there texting me “Auntie, send me $15,000 to start a business”. Olabika olina envunza in your head.
