Lesson Taught
Poultry Day 1 
Ida went to Buluvu and taught about “Hatching “ She told them to tell her what they know about hatching. Kawanguzi said that they didn’t know anything but are ready to learn from Kibo Ida asked the community to help prepare hatching stations to avoid the problem of chickens going to some other people’s homes. This will reduce the loss of eggs that get lost and eaten. Members who have chickens that are incubating, must start planning to get feeds in order to avoid the chics to be eaten by cats, snakes etc. The feed that is needed is chic and duck mash. Maize brand. 62kgs Cotton seed cake. 25 kgs Silver. 10kgs Shells. 2 kgs Pre mix general purpose. 1/2kg Salt. 1/2kg This type of feed is given to chics from day one to week eight. At this point you are able to tell a hen ands cock. Always cocks eat more than hens at a terrible speed. So it’s wise to separate hens from cocks in order to maintain the diet. The feeds for the hens and cocks above eight weeks will be taught next time.
