Edward Kituva, A graduate of Nairobi university was a jobless youth who hailed from Mutomo in Kitui County, He is married and has one daughter.
Kituva became interested in poultry rearing in 2016. This forced him to start saving a few coins when he worked as a casual at world vision organization.

He was so focused in life and had a goal of chasing poverty no matter the cost. In December 2016, He had saved enough and was ready to start his own poultry business.

To avoid challenges, Kituva first did a thorough research on chicken rearing by reading widely on poultry keeping.

“Many farmers venture into farming without key information and the project flops. To avoid such scenario, I read widely on poultry keeping both online and in magazines. My focus was how to tend to chicks from day one to maturity, feeding, housing, vaccination, disease management and marketing matters,” Kituva points out.

To set the ball rolling, He bought the parent stock and began his project at his rural home in Mutomo.

Edward started in January 2017 with 100 day-old improved kienyeji (indigenous) chicks. His preparation paid off in the first batch.

After a month He bought the second batch of 300 chicks, unfortunately there was a desease outbreak and he lost over 100 chicks. Later He managed to control the outbreak by using the appropriate drugs.

” The first challenge I faced was in the second batch where there was an outbreak but I managed to control it by monitoring the health conditions of the chickens. I then isolated any sick chicken from the healthy flock to control spread of diseases,” said kituva

The disease challenge didn’t stop him, instead it motivated him and bought the 3rd batch of 400 chicks and through hard work and determination, his project grew in leaps and bounds and today he has 1000 chicken at different stages of development, among them 680 layers and mature chickens, 400 Month old chicks.

From his current 680 layers and mature chickens Edward is able to sell 100 mature chickens at Ksh 800 per months and 700 eggs per week.

His market is basically local hotels and supermarkets and individuals.

In less than 2 years Kituva’s chicken business has became fruitful to a point of buying him a car and building himself a home.

“The poultry business has transformed my life as I make over Sh1,000 a day from selling eggs and mature chickens for there is ready market for eggs and chickens in mutomo area.”

Edward says the secret to making good money from chicken rearing in Kenya is to keep at least 1000 at a time. This will assure you atleast a profit of Ksh.50,000 per month.

Kituva is now a successful poultry farmer and his advice to those who are interested in the business is to halt shunning from farming.

Going forward, He plans to improve the housing structure and install an automatic watering system to enhance hygiene and cut on cost of labour.
