Above (Fig. 3) is
a comprehensive (and factual) comparison between the poultry breeds
of kari improved Kienyeji chicken, kuroiler improved Kienyeji
chicken, kenbro Kienyeji chicken and rainbow rooster with regard
to their meat production and financial return from the sale of
the kienyeji meat.
The information provided
herein has been computed from material and resources availed by
the primary breed producers ( i.e. KARLO, Keggs Farms Pvt. India,
Indbro Research & Breeding Farms Pvt Ltd and Kenchic) through
various forms including brochures, videos and various online material
available both on their websites and other related sites. This
is to ensure the highest accuracy of the information herein provided.
Of all the
above breeds, KARI Improved kienyeji chicken consumes the
least amount of feed and hence costs the least to
produce its meat.
Market prices for
kienyeji chicken are often not based on the specific breeds but
merely a base price for all kienyeji chicken, which ranges between
Kshs. 750 - 1000.
HOWEVER, if sale
of the kienyeji chicken were to be based on weight, then Rainbow
Rooster, Kenbro, Kuroiler and finally KARI Improved kienyeji chicken
would rank as the most profitable chicken to rear. This is because
rainbow rooster and kenbro top the least of breeds that exhibit
the highest weight gain with a mature rainbow rooster or kenbro
weighing as much as 3 - 5 kgs. Where a kilogram (kg) of kienyeji
chicken retails at Kshs. 450 - 550, then a Rainbow Rooster if
sold based on weight can easily fetch a farmer a price of between
Kshs. 1350 - 2,750. Its up to the farmer to conduct proper research
within their target market inorder to determine the best approach
to take in selling their chicken and attain the highest profit!
Now, armed with the
information above, go yee and make some profit!
