Ida went to Sinde to teach the community how to build chicken coops. They have been learning how to mix feeds, hatch more than two chickens at a ago and where to seek help when needed.
Before they reached Sinde, a big truck got stuck and there was no way through. Ida waited for almost an hour and later decided to turn and take another route with was the farthest.She reached Sinde and found some members waiting but some had left because they thought Ida wasn’t going to make it.
Ida asked who had started keeping chickens since the lessons began?
Hamome started with three chickens and built a coop before Ida demonstrated a chicken coop with the community. His chicken coop was totally enclosed and yet chics need enough air. It also didn’t have any outlets for poop. Ida taught them how to build a coop at a minimum cost. She encouraged the community to start with the local available resources like.little sticks , strings, grass or papyrus.
Hamome encouraged fellow members to start raising chickens and if they needed any help he is ready to help.
Isaac Gusino too reported that he started with two chickens and now has sixteen chics, four are incubating and two are laying eggs.
They thanked Kibo for opening their eyes by teaching developmental lessons.
Matilda was frank and said she has been waiting for other people to start and then she follows.
Ida will be visiting once in a while to give some advice.

This is the chicken coop that Ida advised Hamome to rebuild. Because chickens need enough air in order to breathe well and also avoid diseases that could result from suffocation.
