Kienyeji Chicken Vaccination Schedule

 

The kienyeji chicken might be hardy but they still get sick and get infected by the common  poultry diseases in Kenya. The best shield against potentially deadly poultry diseases is timely vaccination. Follow the schedule below to vaccinate your kienyeji chickens in time and offer them maximum protection from critical diseases that could potentially wipe off your stock:-

Some of these vaccinations must be done at the hatchery so you must buy your day old chicks from a reputable hatchery that will not leave anything to chance to ensure the optimal health of its chicks.

Chick Brooding: Brooder Setup for Chicks

Chicks should be kept in the brooder for the first three weeks under controlled conditions. There are modern brooders made of plastic or steel but you can as well make use of plywood brooders in a round pen which should be at least 60cm high.

The wooden brooder should have the following:-

  • Wood shavings on the floor to keep the brooder dry and also provide warmth to the chicks
  • Have enough feeders and drinkers. There should be one feeder and one drinker for every 50 chicks but you can reduce the ratio to one for every 30 in order to provide optimal feeding conditions with very little overcrowding of the chicks.
  • Have enough of high quality commercial chick mash. The Fugo and Chick and Duckling mash is a good one and this should be fed to the chicks for the first 8 weeks.
  • Have clean drinking water in good and efficient drinkers where there is less contamination.
  • Have a jiko in the middle of the brooder in order to keep the chicks warm. There should be one jiko for every 300 chicks. Check out our Kienyeji Chicken Farming Manual for additional information on the chick behavior at various temperatures and how to achieve optimal temperature.

Below is a diagram on how you can set up your brooder:-

When you are changing feeds, do it slowly so that you do not put the chicks under any duress. For example, you can change one feeder at a time. Use red feeders as well red color drinkers in order to attract the chicks to the feed. You can also use feeders and drinkers with bright yellow colors. Check out our post on the importance of red or yellow feeders and drinkers.

The Kienyeji Feeds Formulation Manual

In early March, we received a phone call from a farmer who had purchased a commercial mash for her kienyeji and after a few weeks of feeding, the legs of the chicken started breaking. This is one of the main issues that many farmers face in the commercial kienyeji chicken rearing business guide. The best quality kienyeji chicken feeds costs a lot of money and the cheaper feeds are likely not well formulated and you are likely to face various complications if you purchase from an unscrupulous trader.

The Kienyeji Feeds Formulation Manual is designed to help you escape these complications and formulate high quality feeds at low cost that will contribute to the health of your birds.  In this manual, you will find general information on the poultry feeds that you should give to your kienyeji birds.  Learn about the nutrients that these feeds should constitute, the energy requirements, the proteins, vitamins, the feeding programs for the broilers, the feeding programs for the laying hens, feeding programs for the replacement pullets, chick mash, growers mash, layers mash, the feeding regime for the different ages for your chickens,  as well as how to formulate the feeds for the various kienyeji chickens including the chick mash, growers and layers mash.
