Poultry Farming.

Poultry farmers

Poultry farming in Kenya is mostly practiced small-scale, and predominantly for domestic consumption.

Poultry farming is the raising of domesticated birds such as ducks ,turkeys, chickens, and geese, for the purposes of farming meat or eggs for food.

In the advent of frequent food shortages and fluctuating prices, some farmers have embraced commercial poultry farming methods. These farmers are classified in the following categories:
Between 1 – 1000 birds: small scale farmers
Between 1001 – 10,000 birds: medium scale farmers
Above 10,000 birds: large scale farmers.

The most prevalent poultry farming method in Kenya is chicken farming, although a small number of farmers rear other types of birds. Some farmers specialise on rearing chickens for meat only (broilers), while others focus on chickens for egg production (layers).
