Indbro in Africa05 June 2014
GLOBAL - Indbro Research & Breeding Farms has enhanced the supply of breeding stocks and hatching eggs to East Africa.
Yegen Farms at Eldoret, Kenya has established a hatchery and started off distribution of Indbro Brown Layer chicks produced out of the hatching eggs received from India. Yegen Farms already has the parent flock aged 16 weeks and will be producing their own hatching eggs from July 2014. The commercial chicks are being distributed to many beneficiaries through the JOYWO women’s organisation in Kenya. These sturdy brown layer birds are expected to meet the demand for eggs from many small producers.
Also in Eldoret, KUKU Hatchery promoted by James Chelulay is increasing parent flocks of the dual- purpose multicoloured Rainbow Rooster, increasing capacity four-fold. Large consignments of 10,000 parent chicks will be supplied during June and July 2014.
Dr David Kayondo Livingstone based in Kampala (Uganda) is taking care of the distribution of live chicks and further services required for the birds.
Dual-purpose and multi-coloured Rainbow Rooster and the Indbro White Broiler hatching eggs have been sent to Juba of South Sudan through South Farms Co. Ltd, promoted by James Nyikole. The performance of the chicks hatched is being evaluated and further shipments of eggs are expected to take place in June or July 2014.
