KARI improved Kienyeji are easy to maintain since they can be kept under the free range system or deep litter depending on your financial ability and objectives.
Farmers who want them to mature faster or produce more eggs should keep them in a semi-intensive or deep litter system. This way the chickens don’t spend a lot of energy. As mentioned about, KARI Improved chicken are dual-purpose, therefore farmers have an option of keeping them as layers, for meat or both.
When fed with quality feeds available from accredited manufacturers, a hen can reach up to 1.5kg in five months and a cock weighs 2.1kg. A hen starts laying at 5 month old and can produce between 200 and 250 eggs a year, while Kuroiler lays 150 – 180 eggs. KALRO hens lays bigger eggs (size) compared to pure Kienyeji.
The minimum order for chicks is 50 (if you are buying chicks under 2 week old), this is to make sure they keep each other warm while they are being transported to their new home. For farmers buying 3+ weeks old chicks – minimum order is 10 chicks.
KARI Improved Kienyeji Chicken was developed after years of intensive research under the National Poultry Development Programme. They have high diseas resistance just like pure Kienyeji, but with higher production; both eggs and meat
