First Batch of Hatched Chicks of KIRUCODO’ Bluebonnet Hills-Sponsored Caged Poultry Keeping for supporting poor rural child Education and Nutrition needs project

Today we have been able to deliver to our Brooder in Kikandwa Village a total of 57 one-day old hatched croiler chicks. We collected 100 eggs from our cages and 4 got broken on the way to the hatchery. We remained with a total of 96 eggs of which 57 got hatched; 17 eggs were clear (not fertilized) and 22 eggs got scratched while cleaning.

Some Business calculations

(A) If we had sold the eggs (Fertilized Croiler eggs), we were going to make 100×500= 50,000/= ($20)

(B) Hatching the eggs and selling off one-day old chick can fetch this much 57×3000= 171,000/= ($67.4)

(C) Hatching Fees 96×300= 28,800/= ($12)

(D) B-C= 171,000-28,800= 142,200 ($56.9)

So, every week if a kid is keeping 40 hens and 2 cocks, then he or she will be able to earn $57 less chicken feeds and some transport if she or he decides to hatch the eggs and sell one-day old chicks instead of selling fertilized eggs.
