Ida went to Kitukiro to teach continue with the chicken lesson about hatching. She encouraged the community to first love their chickens before they do anything. Help prepare a laying center, buy a pencil for marking the eggs with dates everyday and get a basket or tray where marked eggs will be kept.
When chickens have stopped laying, sort out the bad eggs ( cracked,too big, too small, pointed, dirty ones,old)
Give as desired ten to seventeen eggs to the chickens and start planning for feeds because after twenty-one days and six hours hatching will be taking place.
Also start preparing to get the following, a charcoal stove, charcoal, a drinker and feeder, kuku star vaccine for cocksdiosis and new castle for bronchitis.
