POULTRY  FARMING

Guest Blog By: Morris Otieno (Wazito Farmers)

Good afternoon members?,, today I came to introduce to you the right chickens to rear,, for you know the right type of chicken to rear for profit,
Many farmers rush to buy new chicken breeds coming into the market without knowing their qualities only to end up with regrets and losses. Poultry keeping is now one of the most popular agribusiness enterprises that many people in Kenya want to go into.
However, many farmers rush into it without the most basic information on how they can do it the right way. The quail fiasco two years ago no doubt left many farmers with empty pockets when they made huge investments in quail rearing leading to glut in the market and a fall in prices.
Many farmers do not seem to have learnt a lesson.
Currently, there are a lot of rumors, and misguided exaggerations about new chicken breeds that are said to do much better than local indigenous breeds in production, enticing farmers to spend a lot of their money in search of the breeds which they only learnt about in newspaper articles and adverts. In this issue, we would like to shed light on the breeds available in the country and their qualities so that farmers can make informed decisions on the best type of breed they can keep to get good returns by making the best choice from the various breeds in the market.

HOME HUNT IV: HOW YOU CAN GET INTO THE HOME BUSINESS

home 2

Lately Real estate has been the buzz word around town and land is selling like damn hot cakes. So my friend jokes if you happen to meet Kamau (which is religiously often) chances are he will be in a checked (red) shirt and a black polythene bag will be daggling in his hands, that polythene bag will contain among other things, land tittle deed in a brown envelope. (Roll eyes). Enough of him. Thing is left right and center Tom, Dick and Jerry are buying land, have bought land or better still wish (should it be hope?) to buy land in future. The home business in Kenya and around the world continues to grow in thresholds owing to the seven billion plus of us wanting somewhere to call our own. It is disturbing however that everyone has this ingrained notion that real estate business is a preserve for the filthy rich! Maybe, yes but NO, this write-up discusses a listing of the diverse implementable business ideas within the homes business (real estate)

The Chase: Part Two

PART II 

The Chase22

 

(start from here The Chase: Part One) ok. Read on…

…You keep staring. It keeps dawning. The city keeps coming to life minute after second. Activities pick up at a speed that makes you feel life has wasted you or is it you who has wasted life? Kids in boring uniform walking to school. The bodaboda guys ferrying people. Yellow buses aboard advantaged big bodied kids heading to school; buses and matatus like the one you are in stuck in stagnant traffic. The atmosphere virgin of only hope; people on board hell silent like a deserted cemetery. Some with earphones daggling from their ears, others fumbling on their smart phones and a fair majority deep a sleep. You look at the sleeping ones in glances, no one of them cares. Its like you are the only one who gives a damn care that they exist. The teenager with shabby hair walks along the aisle tapping people here and there exchanging cash for receipts. It makes money loose the might; like the only thing it can buy you is a piece of paper on a morning bus from a boy who dropped out of school to follow money. Just a mile ahead some boy of eighteen gets in with loads of airtime and sweets. No one buys. Who buys sweets in the morning? He gets out hope still evident on his face, only that you think otherwise of him. Some old age dark skinned man in a suit un-kept with a rosary dangling from his neck jolts from the front seat. He has a bible in his hand. Its Monday morning. “Another Summon?” You switch off

The Chase: Part One

Part I

This is a story of an average adult in your normal developing (read Third world) Country out to make a cut of the cake out of the chase!

The Chase

 

You wake up. Perhaps late or probably just in time. May be you just managed to wake up on your own like the fair minority. Instincts are wild that you belong to the majority who an alarm need sound to come alive. Sorry if you keep missing the alarm. Shame on you if you keep snoozing, you know? Hoping that some factors just worked out right No, wait, hoping that your dear parents jolted to reality and said “look kid, keep off this chase thing, we are rich, all these was only meant to introduce you to responsibility.” Then you will murmur some hearty prayers to the God of Abraham and cover up head to toe as the rest of us face reality; the chase. Not unless yours is a movie scene.
