OUR BREED (THE KARI IMPROVED KIENYEJI CHICKEN)
KARI improved kienyeji chicken is an indigenous poultry breed researched
on and developed by the former Kenya Agricultural Research Institute
(KARI) (Now, Kenya Agricultural and Livestock Research Organisation
- KALRO). It's a breed that took a decade (10 years) to breed and
perfect, having commenced research in 2002, before officially launching
it into the market in 2012. The breed was originally released under
the brand name of KARI Kienyeji Chicken, but was revised later to
be officially known both locally and internationally as The KARI
Improved Kienyeji Chicken. This was inorder to emphasis the fact
that this breed was purely a local indigenous chicken that is 100%
kienyeji and that has retained all the characteristics of the ordinary
village kienyeji chicken
KARI Improved Kienyeji Chicken has much higher production in terms
of eggs compared to the ordinary kienyeji chicken and hence why
its called 'improved'!
an average egg production of 25 eggs per hen per month (or 300 eggs
annually) , it's production also outmatches all other 'improved
kienyeji breeds' i.e. Kuroiler (150 - 200 eggs annually or 12-16
eggs per hen per month), Rainbow Rooster (160 - 180 eggs annually
or 13 - 15 eggs per hen per month) or Kenbro ( 150 eggs annually
or 13 eggs per hen per month).
high egg production aspect is what makes the KARI Improved kienyeji
chicken reign supreme over all other 'improved kienyeji chicken'
breeds and why its unmistikably the most profitable breed to keep
