Ida went to Kasuleta to with the hatching and sorting lesson, four people volunteered to learn fully and teach the rest. This will help the community sustain when community empowerment phases out.
Ida encouraged the community to always help chickens when they are looking for laying spots. This will help avoid loosing eggs and increase on the hatch. If you don’t know where your chicken laying spot that shows carelessness. We have to give our time if we want good results Ida said.
After collecting our marked eggs, we must sort out the following eggs before giving them for incubation.
1 Too small, Too big, Too dirty, Cracked, Too pointed and the old ones that were laid first.
NB. It’s not that all these six bad types will be there, check and see you might only get one bad egg or completely none, so don’t think that you’re going to loose all the six eggs. This will only help you get only good eggs.
Mrs Kadlungu thanked Kibo for training them how to sustain themselves with small things that can turn into bigger businesses when they put what they have learned into practice.
The secretary closed with a prayer.
