Use Kienyeji Mash to Boost Your Yields

Local chicken are a common sight you cannot miss in most homes in Kenya.  Such is normally kept for subsistence and will be a delicacy for the family during special occasions such as Easter, Christmas or when KCPE or KCSE results for the kids look good :-)
They are also kept for their eggs which on many cases are eaten or sold in the local markets.  Kienyeji chicken are very cost effective to keep because they mostly fend for themselves. They can scavenge for their own food such as termites from their surroundings. In a few homes, the kienyeji chicken are well taken care of and proper balance meal provided.  The Kienyeji mash is a meal made with the kienyeji chicken in mind.  This is the beginning of kienyeji chicken commercialization.
By controlling the production and not just letting the chicken roam in the wild, you will begin seeing an improvement in the yields-in both the meat quality and the egg yield. It is, therefore, important to begin adopting a commercial approach to kienyeji rearing and feeding given that it also doesn’t cost much to commercialize your kienyeji chicken farming. There is a story of a farmer who makes as much as Ksh.800,000 when they clear their kienyeji stock. That is close to $10,000 in a only a few months of kienyeji chicken rearing.
About Kienyeji Chicken Feeding
Most kienyeji chicken rarely get the basics when it comes to diet.  They only eat what they are lucky to come about which in many cases is not enough nourishment to guarantee good yields.  Depending on where they are kept, they normally end up drinking untreated water which is a great danger to their health.  Kienyeji mash is meant to supplement all the vitamins and calcium chicken always miss when they are scavenging for food. The “wild” chicken feeding routine is also interrupted by various things such as human traffic, wild cats or even hawks. If left to their own devices, the chicken may not grow to their full potential and fetch as much as they would if you supplemented their scavenging with a little chicken mash. The chicken mash does not cost much anyway but the yield you will get by introducing it into the chicken feeding routine will be huge!
The kienyeji mash includes balanced portions of chicken feed for the better health of your kienyeji chicken.  The mash, generally leads to better meat and egg quality and results in better yields and financial returns for your kienyeji chicken farming business. The feeds come in 20, 50, and or 70 kg bags.  There are larger ones for those wishing to buy more. 
This factory made kienyeji mash has been tested and undergone adequate research.  Chicken too needs balanced diet.  It supplements the poor or unbalanced kienyeji chicken diet that many kienyeji chicken suffers from and allows them to grow to their full potential. With this supplement, life is no longer a question of survival for your kienyeji chicken. Less time is spent scavenging and the chicken will be able to attain better weight yields.
The Kienyeji mash is also made from fresh farm produce that has not been contaminated.  Contamination has been found to be rife in kienyeji chicken wild feeding routine because they eat anything that comes their way.  Many farmers may prefer the home-made kienyeji chicken mash but if you do not have the right knowledge on how to prepare the kienyeji mash, you may unwittingly introduce contaminants into the feed. The best way to avoid contamination is by using fresh farm products in the preparation and taking the requisite precautions when preparing the kienyeji mash.
If kienyeji poultry farmers could change their attitude regarding feeding their chicken and give them a more balanced diet, they will have better quality, healthier and better products. They will be able to transform their farming from subsistence model to a commercialized model that earns them good money. Kienyeji chicken demand is on the rise and farmers should consider improving their yields in order to break free from the poverty cycle.  Most people are now shying away from the broilers because of the high cost feeding and brood management. Improved kienyeji chicken farming offers the perfect alternative to get equally high yields without any significant investments on your part.
