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

From 40 Kuroiler Hens and 4 cocks, we are now able to supply 1500 Kuroiler chicks to one of our clients in Mukono, Uganda

 A few weeks back, a client submitted an order to our Organization for supplying him 1500 one-day old Kuroiler chicks and last week we were able to deliver 500 chicks as you can see in the photo slideshow below and in the video above while brooding. The chicks were hatched from fertilized eggs from our 40 hens and 4 cocks plus 40 hens and 4 cocks from our two staffs. As you can remember, we started with 40 Kuroiler Hens and 4 cocks as per this Link provides for. At the comment, we have hatched over 4000 fertilized eggs into over 4000 Kuroiler chicks. Every week we take fertilized eggs to the hatchery and every week we deliver new one-day old chicks to our clients and to our local Brooding Centre in Kikandwa village. As an Organization (Kikandwa Rural Communities Development Organization – KIRUCODO), we no longer have an office space as almost all the office space was turned into a Brooding space. Some of our clients press orders for one day old, one week old, two weeks old and one month old Kuroiler chicks. Lastly, if you are out there and need to buy good quality Kuroiler chicks, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at any time. Please enjoy the photos below:

BLUEBONNET-SUPPORTED KUROILER POULTRY KEEPING PROJECT FOR EDUCATION SUPPORT REACHED OUT TO WESIGE MUKAMA PRIMARY SCHOOL WITH 50 ONE-MONTH OLD KUROILER CHICKS

DSCN0103This month on 18 June, 2015, we managed to deliver 50 one month old Kuroiler chicks to Wesige Mukama Primary School Nakasongola District here in Uganda. The school is more than 100 miles away from our offices and it  offers education services to the most needy children from very poor families. The school has been supported with scholastic materials from Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church of Austin, Texas, USA.
The chicks WE DELIVERED to this school will be multiplied by hatching when they begin laying eggs and then the new chicks will be distributed to teachers, parents and children just like we do elsewhere like in Kibiribiri Church of Uganda Primary school and St. John Kaama Education Centre.
This project is currently sponsored by Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church of Austin, Texas, USA and it is getting implemented by Kikandwa Rural Communities Development Organization (KIRUCODO). This project is aiming at supporting the education of poor rural children, eradicate poverty and improve nutrition for poor rural communities in Uganda.

52 One-Month old Kuloirer chicks were donated to two teachers of Kibiribiri C/U Primary School

IMG_5332The Bluebonnet-Supported Kuloirer Caged Poultry Keeping Project has now grown to the extend that every week we take over 120 fertilized eggs and every week we deliver more than 80 one-day old chicks to our community brooder in Kikandwa Village.

Last month, we started to reach out to rural primary teachers with one-month old kuloirer chicks. The chicks are to help them supplement on their lower monthly salaries. Each teacher receives 26 chicks and when they begin to lay eggs, the organization will help them to hatch the eggs into chicks for selling and keeping as they expand their poultry business.

Remember, this project began with two cages with 22 chicks each and to date we have hatched over 1000 chicks in 9 months.

Below is how the delivery was done last month
