Ziwani BLACK

Ziwani BLACK

It is a very popular breed that produces attractively black layers for commercial and free range production. This breed is highly adaptable to sub-optimal and harsh production conditions for free range (Kienyeji chicken) and small scale farming by our customers Around Africa.

The characteristic of this programme is high egg productivity around 300 brown shell eggs (if they are feed commercial layer feeds).


Ziwani BLACK is result of crossing Barred Plymouth Rock paternal stock with Barred Plymouth Rock maternal stock. Day old chicks are feather sexed.


We are only selling Day old chicks in the above breeds at a very friendly cost of Ksh100 each for strain run (as they come from the incubator) or Ksh120 for sexed chicks, therefore is you want to select the number of females and males the cost would be Ksh120 ($1.2).
