Indigenous chicken give better returns
August 6th, 2012
<< back

Unlike exotic breeds, they consume less feed they are tolerant to most diseases and have a ready market.

Poultry keeping has many benefits for small-scale farmers. But farmers need not keep chickens just for their own home consumption in terms of eggs and meat. They need to rear them to generate a reasonable income to improve their income. For a long time now, farmers with an eye on the market believe that one can only keep hybrid or exotic breeds for this purpose. Indigenous chickens, if well selected in terms of breed can bring much more income, if not better than the exotic breeds. One of the factors a farmer should look at when going into poultry production of either indigenous or exotic chickens is the cost of production and the market including prices of each of these breeds.

Advantages of indigenous breeds

Indigenous chickens have many advantages over exotic breeds. One advantage is that indigenous chickens can be fed on home-made feed rations and they can also be allowed to free range, therefore cutting down the amount of feed that the farmer has to give them. Unlike exotic breeds, indigenous are tolerant to many diseases, which reduces the veterinary costs. Although exotic breeds are highly productive in terms of eggs and meat, the cost of keeping them including management is a big challenge to farmers. This makes indigenous chickens much more attractive to keep.

Recently researchers have come up with more productive indigenous breeds such as the Improved KARI Naivasha breed, which lays more eggs than ordinary indigenous breeds. An exotic breed such as the Leghorn can lay upto 300 eggs in a year, but the improved indigenous breed from KARI can produce 220 – 250 eggs under good management. Below is a comparison of the gross profit margins between exotic breed and improved indigenous chicken breed, which can help farmers make a decision on which type of breed is more economical to keep.

    This is an excellent article!

    I invested in 100 KARI improved kienyeji chicks in March 2010 and took delivery in October.My pullets started laying in April 2011 and so far am very impressed with their performance.I had initially caged them for lack of space but production shot up after i relocated them for free ranging.I can confirm what is said in the article because i supplement their feed with weed shavings,vegetable and fruit wastes from my local green grocers. I also give them multi vitamins and anti biotics at irregular intervals.

    Another positive feature is that the hens brood and so far i have 5 brooding hens with an expected hatch later this month.Last week one hen hatched 18 healthy chicks from 20 eggs. So far mortality rate is less than 0%! I have also invested in an incubator to produce chicks for sale (day old @150 and 4 week old @200) and the demand is so overwhelming am thinking of investing in a bigger capacity incubator.

    I am in discussions with my initial clients to form a producer group to enable us service the big orders now starting to come in (i recently got an order for 1000 8-week cockerels).

    If interested in joining our producer group and investing in this breed, contact me on +254 712 777459, email [email protected]

    Slight correction, am selling day old chicks at 80 kshs and 4 week old at 200 kshs.

    This morning i saw very strange behavior with one of the week old chicks,its “crying” a lot and running very fast,backwards! its banging itself onto everything and not eating at all. Is this a disease or what? please advise.

  17. George Mwaluma says:

    I am very impressed by this information to assist young farmers like me who is new poultry farmer in Mombasa. I do keep about 900 exotic broilers and my profits are very small because the costs of feeding the exotic birds is very high.

    But I am encouraged by your information that I got thru your website, because I was thinking of keeping exotic layers instead of exotic broilers which is too expensive and the market demand is not favourable at all. I have now decided to keep improved kienyeji layers into my poultry farm. How can access the Improved KARI Naivasha breed that lays 220 – 250 eggs here in Coast. My contacts are 0705620588 or 0721329066 or 041-2226523 Mombasa.

    Charcoal briquettes for sale suitable for Poultry farmers.
    The fuel burns for long which makes it best suitable for warming young chicks at night,
    They are also cheaper by 40% than the normal charcoal, enabling farmers to save significanly on energy bills for heating,
    Emissions are lower than charcoal because the raw material is fully carbonised & therefore not volatile.

    Hi Guys? KEnbro is also an improved Indeginous chicken same as KARI, which of these two breads is good for egg production of a capacity of 2000 chicken? Secondly, do Kenchic sell fertilised egg?

    • John ochieng says:

      My own recommendation for you is that for egg production you go for the KARI breed.Which can be reared as a free range chicken.Ken bro is a dual purpose breed whose feed consumption can be slightly higher than that of the KARI breed.

  83. JS says:

    Can you please explain why the feed costs are different between the two breeds? What goes into making chick mash in the second table and why are all the inputs less expensive?

  156. Muenmu says:

    I visited KARI NAIVASHA and was amazed at their good work. The cost of feed per chicken is far much lower than KENBRO which I have reared before. I did away with all the Kebro and got into Kari chicken.I am now hatching chicks from KARI stock which I am selling to interested farmers at competitive rates. I live at Kahawa Sukari in Nairobi.
    You can book chicks by paying a 30% deposit. You can also call to plan for a visit and training for 500 sh only for those not buying chicks.Those who buy chicks do not pay the induction training fee.
