The chicken project starts quickly, generate hope and help reciprocal.
Chicken projects are not as expensive as many other projects and them last
The families earn hope, some money fast and they are increasing
their nourishing status.
Apart from the eggs and meat the families also get
manure for the gardens and can therefore also having more vegetables.
The money they earn they use for school fees, medical care for the family
members and for the chickens and renovation of houses.
The members get ten hens and one rooster each and 30 kg of chicken food to
start the project.
They also got seminars to improve the project. When new
chickens are born, waglos.org gets back two chickens from every hen. That
means that waglos.org gets back 20 chickens from one member and gives ten
hens and one rooster to a new member in the project.
What the project will need is to have more seminars that include different
sectors, for example, the rural development and entrepreneurship.
This would improve their knowledge and will give them better skills, which will
increase the outcome of the project. The group it self-has started three
groups inside the project. Each group has members, and they are there to
help each other and develop the project.
They are easy and inexpensive to take care of many breeds can eat whatever
they find on the ground (although it’s better if you can feed them because
they’ll grow faster). Hens need some kind of shelter, cage, where they can
nest, and as your flock grows, you might want to make a big cage.
Finally, chickens need a few vaccines. The one that prevents the deadly Newcastle disease costs less than 15 p.
They’re a good investment. A new family member starts with ten hens and a
rooster to fertilise the hen´s eggs. After three months, she can have a flock of 40 chicks.
6 hens = 4-6 eggs per day
7 hens = 5-7 eggs per day
10 hens = 9-10 eggs per day
The faeces of the chicken can be used in agriculture and in the garden.
