Our OUTGROWERS PROGRAMME
seeks to improve the domestic house-hold incomes of individual
members while at the same time meeting the market demand for quality
and reliable kienyeji chicken and eggs supply.
The key challenge
for any poultry farmer is market and the program seeks to address
this by centralizing sale and distribution of Kienyeji chicken
meat and eggs from members of the program by having Homerange
Poultry Kenya collect the Kienyeji chicken products directly from
the farmers then using its wide market network to sell and distribute
the products. The earnings from these sales are then trickled
down to the individual farmer.
The other major challenge
is access to affordable but quality poultry feed and to address
this issue individual members / farmers shall be supplied on a
weekly or monthly basis with feeds from Homerange Poultry Farm
that have been formulated to meet the nutritional requirements
for Kienyeji chicken. Farmers can purchase the feed in the smallest
quantity affordable to them without the need to have large sums
of money to purchase whole bags of feeds as is currently the case
in the market.
Members of the initiative
will also be provided with FREE advice and support to ensure that
any challenges that may arise are dealt with promptly to eliminate
cases of chicken deaths / mortality .
Under the program,
the members will also be supplied with quality KARI Improved Kienyeji
chicks when they are at three (3) weeks of age
at a subsidizprice of Kshs. 200 each. This is
to ensure that by the time the chicks are going into the hands
of the farmer, they have received very critical vaccines and they
have also grown enough and are past the very delicate stage that
day old chicks normally are at.
that the minimum number of chicks a member can place an order
for is 100 chicks.
