Our Kuroiler Chicken parent stock is developing well

Our parent stock is developing well and this is the feed formula we use at this stage: In100Kg of Maize Bran, add: 12Kg of Fish (silver fish), 12Kg of Cotton cake, 12Kg of Lime or Shells, 0.5Kg of General Premix, 0.5Kg of Salt, 0.5Kg of Toxic Binder, NOTE: -You can add 20Kg of Broken maize if there no enough granules in the maize bran. Always remember to add toxic binder to get lead of any pathogens which might be dangerous to your birds.

LESSONS LEARNT FROM MY EGGPLANT CROP

I have realized that you can harvest over 10 fruits from a single eggplant crop. If for example you plant 10 eggplants, then you are likely to harvest not less than 100 fruits. If you plant in a sack like I did, then you need to irrigate during dry days. In my case, I use a 2L plastic bottle for irrigating my eggplant for entire week as you can see in the photos. Remember this very important fact, you need to be able to make your own composite manure to help you easily enrich your backyard soil. You can learn from my video how you can easily and cheaply make one for you right at your home: https://youtu.be/dVYrVxwcjj4

HOW TO EASILY AND CHEAPLY IRRIGATE YOUR BACKYARD CROPS DURING A DRY SEASON?

Flipped upside down plastic bottle filled with water

During hot seasons, it’s important that we keep ourselves and our plants well hydrated. In the heat and sun, our bodies perspire to cool us down, and plants transpire in the midday heat too. Just as we rely on our water bottles throughout the day, plants can benefit from a slow-release watering system as well.

Fill your bottle to the top with water. Then flip the bottle upside down and bury it about two inches into the soil. As the soil dries out from your last watering, fluid will slowly drip from the bottle into your soil, ensuring that your plant receives just the moisture it needs to thrive. It is amazing but, the plant consumes very little water a day and that 1L plastic bottle can serve a crop for a number of days during the week.
