We have experiences of breeding KARI, Kienyeji (indigenous) and now Kuroiler chicken. Out of the three breeds we can confidently say that the Kuroiler grow faster than the KARI and Kienyeji.

Kuroiler hens mature between two and four months and weigh approximately 2.5 kg. They start laying at three months, continuously for two years, and the males are around 4.5 kg whereas the Kienyeji weighs 1 kg and females 0.9 kg.

Kuroiler V Kari, Kienyeji

Kuroiler chicken lay around 150 – 200 eggs, KARI lay between 200 – 250 eggs, while Kienyeji lay 40 – 70 eggs per year. Therefore you can see clearly that that Kuroiler produce five times more eggs than the Kienyeji.

The only disadvantage that stands out is that Kuroiler does not sit (incubate) its eggs. They rarely go broody and if they do they won’t sit on the eggs for the whole 21 days duration. Therefore a farmer would need a Kienyeji broody chicken or an incubator to hatch Kuroiler eggs.
