Yay!!! On May 25, the first egg was laid. It was a day of celebration and joy since our efforts were finally bearing fruit. The sad thing is that during the next 3 weeks we lost 5 birds, which were trampled to death as they struggled to find a corner to lay.
We have now fixed the issue and the birds are getting used to the hatchery boxes “bibikiro” in the local language, and as of June 4 (USA Independence day) we are achieving 90% productivity.
Dietwise even if the birds are laying they are still on growers mash till end of July, 2 months of productivity, to ensure they grow and develop producing for much longer.
For now we are ramping up advertisement and growing the market for the eggs
