The second Bluebonnet Hills-Sponsored cage was delivered early this year to Kibiribiri Church of Uganda Primary School with a total of 22 birds. The cage is kept at the Chairman School Management Committee who actually lives near the school. This is part of the Small-scale commercial caged poultry keeping for supporting poor rural child Education and Nutrition needs project which was initiated by KIRUCODO to help poor rural children sponsor their education needs like scholarstic materials, uniforms, shoes, lunches, etc.

Today we have a pleasure to inform you that the birds started to lay eggs and so far over 100 have been collected in a period of 2 weeks. The two cages can now produce over 100 fertilized eggs a week and we have started to take them to the hatchery to hatch into chicks which we shall be distributing accordingly and we sell some at 2,800/= (Ugandan Money) about US$1.1 per one-day old chick. Further, excess fertilized eggs are currently on sale at KIRUCODO offices at 500/= (Ugandan Money) about US$ 0.2 per egg.

Since our birds started laying, we now invest more in chicken feeds, vet and hatchery services and we still need your support to help us reach out to more of our target groups.

We thank you all and we thank Bluebonnet Hills for their continued support towards this education-support project.
