MARKETING OF KIENYEJI CHICKEN

Indigenous chicken, what is referred to in Kenya as Kienyeji chicken is the preferred chicken of many households and eateries in Kenya. Despite making up 80% of the population of chicken in Kenya, low productivity means that indigenous chicken make up only 60% of all chicken consumed in Kenya.

Urban retailers have significant unmet demand for indigenous chickens (e.g. local supermarkets each want 500 chickens per week per outlet) but cannot find a consistent supply to meet this demand. Indigenous chicken is truly local with 95% of the chicken consumed within 10 – 15km radius of the producer,

There is a large and under-served market for Kienyeji chicken and the national demand is growing steadily. While this is happening, producers still complain of lack of market while retailers complain of lack of supply. To be able to satisfy these current and emerging markets, farmers should first ensure they adopt technology and employ the best practices in poultry production to ensure the right quality and quantities demanded by the target market.

Producers must then organize themselves to satisfy local demand before reaching out to big league buyers and processors where honouring set contractual obligations may still prove a challenge. The first point of call should be to take a census of all eateries in your nearest urban or peri-urban centre and note their daily chicken needs.

It is very common to find that small kiosks and eateries could well together be taking an average of 100 birds per day all put together. For a farmer who has staggered his or her production so as to sell an average of 50 to 100 birds daily, this is a great sustainable market that does not require heavy investments in transport and marketing costs.

Farmers can also leverage the power of social media for free marketing or by word of mouth within a 15km radius so every household knows where to get their eggs and chicken. There will be a large additional market from weddings, schools, church functions, funerals and other social and political gatherings.

A cadre of lead farmers however (farmers keeping large number of birds) need to have contractual obligations with big buyers or processors like supermarkets, big institutions  like universities and colleges, butcheries(meat sellers) among others. These are big supplies that run into between 500 per week to 1000 per week. Before signing such contracts it is imperative to note that they have to be honoured because a breach would severe chances of future relationships and frustrate your business efforts.

Marketing can also be very frustrating when your margins are very low. Low margins means you lack the energy and finances to improve or continue production. A careful management of costs to ensure an increasingly good profitability can be attained if you become master of your business and employ stringent cost cutting measures that do not interfere with quality. One such measure would be moving from use of commercial feeds to making your own feed at home which effectively reduces your costs by almost 50%.

The key marketing tip note is to start from your locality, satisfy its demand before seeking bigger supply obligations, use the power of social media to reach out, produce outstanding qualities and desired quantities, stagger your production so you can be able to sell every month, strive to build on your flock each month to graduate from smallholding to lead farming and ensure you capture new technologies you need to adopt to bring efficiency to your poultry enterprise.

Then you can safely walk the path of commercialization of chicken production.

Kienyeji Chicken Farming as an Income Generator in Depressed Areas

Kienyeji chicken is an existing resource in a number of households in Kenya and other African countries. It is very rare coming across a home that does not have an average of 5 Kienyeji or indigenous chicken for family subsistence. It is also common to have each of the family members owning chicken in the home from the heads of the household to young primary school children who are ordinarily given a hen to ‘try their luck’ in Kienyeji chicken farming in Kenya and thus address their own private needs like school books and pencils when their chicken multiply.

It also a source of eggs and ready, cheap source of protein meat for ‘change of diet’in settings of poverty. Finally it is a source of almost ready income in cases of emergencies like purchase of drugs to address family illness, buy soap for cleaning among other small but equally important household needs or requirements.

Chicken in a Run: Improved Kienyeji Chicken Farming
Chicken in a Run: Improved Kienyeji Chicken Farming

Smallholder poultry production is therefore a very powerful tool to easily generate income because farmers are basically not re-inventing the wheel but basically working smart on what they have been doing for generations. If we are focused on getting people to take the first steps towards earning significant money from farming, communities that have a history of Kienyeji chicken rearing have to be mobilized through small investments in indigenous chicken production. Smallholder poultry keeping has the potential to a change a people’s way of life because it offers the farmers a number of advantages:

Flexible Production:  This kind of production system at the village level can be adapted or done in different agro-ecological areas thus not limiting in its scope of generating income and particularly the remote and poorer neighborhoods that are resource constrained. The local population only needs to increase their production with only very minimal inputs. This kind of flexibility ensures that anybody almost anywhere in Kenya and indeed in East Africa can keep indigenous (Kienyeji) chicken.

One of the advantages of Kienyeji Chicken Farming is the low cost of production
One of the advantages of Kienyeji Chicken Farming is the low cost of production

Low labour Requirements: Kienyeji chickens in the remote villages are given only what food leftovers are available but largely left to roam and scavenge for their own food. Direct labour going into their rearing is very minimal making it one of the easiest undertakings for low-income earners.

Inexpensive Housing and Low Input: Kienyeji chicken can be kept in any housing that is made using locally available resources and therefore does not require huge investments in housing construction. They are hardy and can live in any condition provided they are not visited by extremes of temperature.

Income Generation:Kienyeji chicken farming can earn any family enough income to help them respond to their basic needs through personal selling by the locals in local markets, to neighbours, institutions like schools and hospitals and in community social events like funerals and weddings.

Kienyeji chicken farming may also be the first rung on the livestock ladder that allows smallholder farmers to progress through increase of economic activities to improve their circumstances. A farmer may keep chicken, save and buy a goat or sheep which multiplies and are sold to buy a cow that supplies milk for the family and earns income.

Kienyeji chicken farming can therefore be employed successfully among the smallholder farmers in rural and peri-urban settings to generate income if farmers are adequately assisted with basic capacity building in increasing production, strengthening financial access and linkages and access to markets so farmers can make contract sales and plan with their lives. We also need to employ effective gender-sensitive methodologies to ensure the organized and profitable rearing of poultry is a source of improved livelihoods not pain in these struggling households where sometimes the chicken belong to the wife during production but ownership cedes to the man at point of sale and use of the money so realized.
