BUSINESS IDEAS FOR #UGANDA - KROILER CHICKEN

Stop looking for unattainable jobs and consider your own project.

The following is from a fellow Ugandan - Majo Kalyango Nabbuto.  

100 Kroilers can give about 75 eggs per day which works out to 2.5 trays a day and 75 trays a month. Let's say you sell a tray at sh. 10k, that's sh. 750,000 a month.  These birds consume 10kgs of food daily so it will cost you sh. 300,000 a month to feed them.  Now you are looking at sh. 750,000 less the cost of feed sh. 300,000.  Allocate sh. 50,000 in case you have to buy any medication for them.  You will end up with a profit of sh. 400,000.  What would happen if you had 1000 birds?!  OR what if you don't sell the eggs, fertilize them and incubate them, how many birds will you have in a year?  Three weeks old bird cost sh. 3,500 - 4, 000.  One day olds are cheaper if you can brood.  They grow any where and eat anything.  Ensure that you buy them from a genuine supplier, preferably government centers since some people sell counterfeits.  Get a move on it people.  You can self employ. If you have sh. 1 million or more, you can get started.

There is this ingredient called Bavonite.  Tell your guys to look for it in container village from Bulemeezi Farmers.  It does wonders by making sure that most feeds taken by birds don't return to waste, but get digested.  For broilers, I hope they use pellets, buy a few Kroilers for experiment, the saving is mostly on food and power.  There is a new type of potato species with vitamin A.  Top Farmers have brought it and  your people may grow some.  Kroilers feed on it and it’s wonderful.  I wish you were here Leah, I would fry for you two types of eggs, Kroilers and local chicken and you would see no difference.

One more thing, tell your people to give Newcastle for starters and you need vitamin A and the anti Virals.  Wash the hands and soak the gum boots in medicine before you enter the poultry house.  Always keep the house clean and do not mix the Kroilers with local chicken.   I insist on this and being very clean will help avoide most diseases which come from dirt.


People stop this business of boda boda which cost sh. 3m and returns only sh. 10k a day.  You will take a much longer time to become rich if you remain in this business of transportation.

The farmers testified that the Kuroilers grew faster, putting on 1kg for hens and 1.5kg for cocks by three months and 3kg and 4kg respectively by six months.

Just like the local breeds, the Kuroilers are largely kept under a free range system, where the birds are left to scratch for food with no restrictions and very little or no supplements.

“The difference is that while the locals are moderate while scratching for food and may even take a rest, Kuroilers are aggressive and feed continiously. This explains why they put on weight faster than the local breeds,” says Esau Galukande, the NAGRC technical manager, who also took part in the research.

A farmer in Wakiso district said the birds grow faster, produce more and bigger eggs.
Compared to hybrids, the egg-yolk is even more yellowish, hence more nutritious. The fact that this farmer kept the chicken successfully in a semi-urban environment is a pointer to their big potential.

“I package the eggs in sets of half a dozen and sell them in supermarkets. A tray goes for sh10,000 compared to sh6,000 for hybrid eggs,” said Betty Ssewanyana, a farmer in Entebbe. Ssewanyana said while the mortality of local chicken is high, all the 23 Kuroiler chicken she got grew.

Gen 1 hens only 7,875
Assumes 50% of the eggs from Gen 1 are cocks 7,875 (they weigh 4kg at 6 months and go for between UGX 30-40,000)

Advantages of Kroiler Chicken
Basically it has all the advantages of local chicken but they grower faster and produce more eggs which also have a yellow york. You can put them under a free range or you can build a house for them but their feeding is not as strict as the broilers and layers.
The Kuroiler chickens offer a significant improvement in virtually all areas of breeding. While indigenous chickens lay just 30-40 eggs per year, the Kuroilers can easily produce five times that number or around 150-200. Kuroilers also grow to about double the body weight of their native counterparts, providing much more edible meat.
Compared to hybrids, the egg-yolk is even more yellowish, hence more nutritious. The fact that this farmer kept the chicken successfully in a semi-urban environment is a pointer to their big potential.
Kroiler hens mature between two and four months and weigh between 2 and 3 kilograms. At three months, the hens start laying eggs continuously for two years. A mature Kroiler cock weighs between 4 to five kilograms. Kroiler chicks are more resistant to diseases and can easily be treated by mixing vitamins, feeds and water.
Just like the local breeds, the Kuroilers are largely kept under a free range system, where the birds are left to scratch for food with no restrictions and very little or no supplements.
The difference is that while the locals are moderate while scratching for food and may even take a rest, Kuroilers are aggressive and feed continiously. This explains why they put on weight faster than the local breeds
