OUR BREED (THE KARI IMPROVED KIENYEJI CHICKEN)
The 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.
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, albeit with now higher
production of eggs, lowest feed consumption
(hence lower cost of production) and faster maturity
period (Only 4.5 months).
Improved Kienyeji Chicken has much higher production in terms
of eggs compared to the ordinary kienyeji chicken and hence why
its called 'improved'!
With 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).
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.
