We gave the group an eye opener in an example format and it went this way; if one farmer keeps 10 hens plus one cock with a vision that each hen produces 10 chicks and then you multiply it (10 chicks) by the 10 hens then in less than 4 months you will be having 100 hens plus the previous 10.
Currently at the local market rate, a hen is sold at a minimum of Kshs. 600. Suppose you wanted to sell the first lot, how much will you gain? And secondly, suppose you gave them room to replicate! That marks a simple achievable strategy to fight the arising poverty gap. In the next trainings, we shall focus on how to construct different designs of poultry houses and disease management.
