Kuroiler chicks

Kienyeji chicken are the normal free range chicken found in the villages all over Kenya. They go broody, therefore sit on eggs, they lay a small amount of eggs, say, 15 – 20 eggs then sit on them, then they care for their chicks for around 1.5 months before they start laying again.

They Kienyeji chicken are not known for big size or for laying big size eggs, you can tell a kienyeji chicken by looking at its skin, legs and eyes; they are supposed to be yellow in colour, although the KARI and Kuroiler are now being commercially reared nowadays, if they are left outside to roam around and free range like the Kienyeji, they do start turning yellow just like the Kienyeji, but they won’t go broody, and if they do they do not sit on the eggs for the whole 21 days, they tend to lose interest after a couple of weeks.

Since Kienyeji chicken (indigenous) go broody and also car for their chicks for a month and a half, this means they do not have time to lay a lot of eggs, therefore they lay around 100 eggs per year, the eggs are also small in size and cream or white in colour.

They do not have big bodies like the KARI and Kuroilers, since they have a hard time getting food, looking for bugs and insect, walking all over looking for food, they lose a lot of weight doing so. One can increase their size buy giving them commercial feeds for the 1st month to give them the best start in life.

Some people use the Kienyeji chicken to sit on the eggs and then they remove the chicks and place more eggs for the chicken to sit on them, they can do that for up to 3 times.

  4. Lily says:

    Is there a colourant that can be used on kienyeji chicken when they are slaughtered to make them look more yellow?

    1. Hi Lily,

      Why would you want to colour the chicken? Just get the kienyeji that is free range. That’s why people have all this types of cancers because some farmers want shortcuts to make money.

    How long does it take to receive the chicks After making a down payment of 10%?

    1. Hi Grace,

      You make a deposit of 20% to make a booking, waiting time depends on the age of the chicks you require. You need to make the final payment before we ship or before you collect the chicks.

      Many Thanks

    How can i get the 1week old chicks? Am asking whether you provide free trasport for customers.

    1. Hi Joseph,

      Yes you can get the chicks from Day old to a month old. But we do not offer free transport. We have customers from all over, even outside the country if we were to offer free transport to places like Tanzania and Uganda it would cost us a fortune.

      Kinf Regards
