Keeping Kuroiler Chicken to raise money for building homes for members of Uganda Housing Cooperative Union

blogThis week, we started to develop a Sustainable profitable Kuroiler Chicken keeping business plan for five Housing Cooperative Societies under UHOCHU namely: Kabizi-Wankwale, Kidokolo-Twezimbe, Nnongo, Nkokonjeru-Caritas and Polysack housing cooperatives. Members of the five societies were trained early this month in Kuroiler keeping and Management and today they consider Kuroiler keeping as a business to engage into as a group to save and build individual homes on their recently purchased land. Society members are grouped into a group of 5 families each and given a startup kit of 60 kuroiler chicks, materials and startup feeds each.

Bluebonnet Kuroiler Keeping Project Model under replication by a number of Organizations and Individuals

1Good Job. Five months ago, Kisowera Community Needs Uganda members were trained in Kuroiler Keeping and Management. They have 30 hens and 3 cocks and today they have been able to bring 90 eggs for hatching into chicks. They plan to bring 90 eggs every week for hatching. From 30 hens, they are able to get at least 15 eggs every day which makes it 105 eggs every 7 days. From 90 eggs, they are able to get atleast 70 chicks every week. In a month they are able to get atleast 280 chicks which makes it atleast 3360 chicks every year. Remember, we are considering the least number of eggs but 30 hens can still lay 26 or 20 eggs a day.
Credit go to Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church which took lead in supporting the Designing, Development, and Implementation of this Kuroiler Keeping project for Education Support and Household income generation.

Transforming children’s mind from bee hating to bee loving for Development

img_3461

We managed to capture the queen bee and removed her wings so to prevent her from flying away. We successfully transferred the colony into a bee hive so the family can continue to harvest honey plus other bee product.

This is what you need to know to prevent bees from stinging you: First, you need to calm them down by smoking. If you are going to be transferring the bees into an hive, then you need to capture the queen and remove her wings so she can not fly. If you don’t remove her wings, you can enclose her in a cage with holes where she can be fed but not able to get out immediately (the worker bee will be able to open a passage for her to get out after some days). Then the rest of the bees will just come to protect the queen. Also, when a bee moves on you, just leave it and don’t kill it. If you kill it then other bees will smell a certain scent and they will begin to sting you. Also, you don’t have to run but just walk gently and don’t wear perfume. Always smoke yourself and try to smoke around.

Do you have a problem with bees? Just drop us a line and we shall be right there. Thank you

Value addition on Moringa brings in more income

Blog-Picture.pubThough Moringa is consumed unprocessed in countries such as India, the Agricultural Research Centre (ARC) of South Africa is making massive profits out of assorted products produced from Moringa.

Research at ARC has proved that Moringa is 7 times the vitamin C of Orange, 10 times the vitamin A of carrot, 17 times the calcium of milk, 15 times the potassium of banana, and 25 times the iron of spinach.

The just concluded Third Global Conference on Agricultural Research for Development (GCARD3), exposed participants on innovative research approaches leading to value addition on indigenous medicinal plants in South Africa. A field trip to ARC revealed how result-oriented research can increase income of both research institutions and household farmers through the processing of agricultural produces into a number of branded products.  One of such plants looked at during the trip on 07th April, 2016 was Moringa which is grown locally at the ARC and local farmers.
