Lesson Taught
Poultry Day 1 
Ida went to Maliga to continue with the poultry lesson. Many people have chickens but luck the knowledge of caring them. Kibo about this issue and found out that if the community learned how to care, feed and the treatment needed, they would increase their income and diet. Ida asked the community “ what is a chicken.?” All knew what the chicken looked like but couldn’t tell what it is. Ida told them that it is the only bird raised at home officially that is allowed to be served to in-laws in Busoga and Buganda culture. The community members agreed and confessed that learning never ends. Ida told the community that the first thing they must do before deciding to raise chickens, is to LOVE them in order to enjoy raising chickens. Once they fall in love with what they are doing, everything will be possible. Ida encouraged the community to help chickens find laying stations. This will reduce loosing eggs due to un safe environments. If for example three chickens start the process of laying, Mark every egg according to the date layed for easy identification . When all chickens start the incubation period, select only good eggs and give them. Then prepare a stove, charcoal, a drinker and a feeder, glucose and kuku star vaccine so that after 21 days and six hours you will be ready for the chics.
