How to Make Chicken Feed

Chicken feed has become very expensive and the only way to make a decent return from rearing chicken for meat or eggs is to make to your own chicken feed. In fact, many Kenyan animal feeds manufacturers make sub-standard feeds so from whatever angle you look at it, you are better making your own chicken feed.

The Nation Newspaper recently ran an interesting piece that explained how a farmer could go about making their own chicken feed. If you missed it, here is an extract of the salient points below.


By Nation Seeds of Gold

To formulate feeds, farmers have to use the Pearson Square method. In this method, the digestible crude protein (DCP) is the basic nutritional requirement for any feed preparation for all animals and birds.


Now, assuming that a farmer wants to make feed for their chicken using this method, they have to know the crude protein content of each of the ingredients they want to use to make their feed.

The following are the DCP values for each of the common ingredients used in feed making:

  • Whole maize — 8.23%
  • Soya — 45%
  • Fishmeal (omena) — 55%
  • Maize bran — 7%
  • Sunflower — 35%

Each category of chicken has its nutritional requirement. For example, if we want to make feed for layers, the feed should have at least 18 percent crude protein.

If one was to formulate feed for layers, then they would have to calculate the percentage of DCP in each of the ingredients they want to use to ensure that the total crude protein content is at least 18 percent.

Therefore, to make a 70kg bag of feed for layers, a farmer would require the following ingredients:

  • 34kg of whole maize
  • 12kg of soya
  • 8kg of omena (fishmeal)
  • 10kg of maize bran
  • 6kg of lime (as a calcium source)

To find out if all the above ingredients meet this standard of 18% crude protein, a farmer can do a simple calculation as follows:

  • Whole maize — 34kg x 8.23 ÷100 = 2.80 %
  • Soya — 12kg x 45kg ÷ 100 = 5.40 %
  • Omena — 8 kg x 55kg ÷ 100 = 4.40 %
  • Lime — 6 kg x 0 kg ÷ 100 = 0.00%
  • Total % of crude protein = 13.30%

To get the total crude protein percentage of all these ingredients in a 70kg bag of feed, the farmer should take this crude protein content of the combined ingredients, divide by 70kg and multiply by 100, thus — 13.30 ÷70 ×100 = 19%; this shows that the crude protein content of the above feed formulation is 19%, which is quite adequate for layers.

To ensure the chicken to get all they need in terms of nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and amino acids, you need these additives in their standard quantities.

In order to make it even simpler for farmers who would wish to make their own feeds, below are feed formulations for each category of chickens and stage of growth already worked out such that all the farmer needs is to buy the ingredients and mix them:

How to Make a 70 kg Bag of Layers Chick Mash (1-4 weeks)

Growing chicks require feed with Digestible Crude Protein (DCP) of between 18 to 20 percent. The following formulation can be used to make a 70kg bag of layers chick mash:

Ingredients

  • 31.5kg of whole maize
  • 9.1kg of wheat bran
  • 7.0kg of wheat pollard
  • 16.8 kg of sunflower (or 16.8 kg of linseed)
  • 1.5kg of fishmeal
  • 1.75kg of lime
  • 30g of salt
  • 20g of premix Amino acids
  • 70g of tryptophan
  • 3.0g of lysine
  • 10g of methionine
  • 70 g of Threonine
  • 50g of enzymes
  • 60g of coccidiostat
  • 50g of toxin binder
  • Making a 70 kg bag of growers mash (4 to 8 weeks)

Growers (pullets or young layers) should be provided with feed having a protein content of between 16 and 18 percent. Such feed makes the young layers to grow fast in preparation for egg laying:

  • 10kg of whole maize
  • 17kg of maize germ
  • 13kg of wheat pollard
  • 10kg of wheat bran
  • 6kg of cotton seed cake
  • 5kg of sunflower cake
  • 3.4kg of soya meal
  • 2.07kg of lime
  • 700g of bone meal
  • 3kg of fishmeal

Additives
  • 14g of salt
  • 1g of coccidiostat
  • 18g of Pre-mix
  • 1g of zinc bacitracitrach
  • 7g of mycotoxin binder

How to Make a 70 kg Bag of Layers’ Mash (18 weeks and above)

Ingredients

  • 34kg of whole maize
  • 12kg of Soya
  • 8kg of fishmeal
  • 10kg of maize bran, rice germ or wheat bran
  • 6kg of lime
  • Amino acids
  • 175g premix
  • 70g lysine
  • 35g methionine
  • 70kg Threonine
  • 35g tryptophan
  • 50g toxin binder
Layer feed should contain a Digestible Crude Protein (DCP) content of between 16-18 per cent.

The feed should contain calcium (lime) for the formation of eggshells (laying hens that do not get enough calcium will use the calcium stored in their own born tissue to produce eggshells).

Layer feed should be introduced at 18 weeks.

How to Make a 70 kg Bag of Broiler Feed


Broilers have different feed requirements in terms of energy, proteins and minerals during different stages of their growth. It is important that farmers adapt feed rations to these requirements for maximum production.

Young broilers have a high protein requirement for the development of muscles, feathers, etc. As the broilers grow, their energy requirements for the deposit of fat increase and their protein requirements decrease.

They therefore require high protein content in their starter rations than in the grower and finisher rations.

Broilers should have feed that has between 22 -24 percent DCP. The following guidelines can help the farmer to make the right feed at each stage of growth:

Broiler Starter Feed (1-4 weeks)

  • 40kg of whole maize
  • 12kg of fishmeal (or omena)
  • 14kg of soya bean meal
  • 4kg of lime
  • 70g of premix
  • Amino acids
  • 35g of lysine
  • 35g of Threonine

Preparing Broiler Finisher feed (70kg)

  • 10kg of whole maize
  • 16.7kg of maize germ
  • 13.3kg of wheat pollard
  • 10 kg wheat bran
  • 6 kg of cotton seed cake
  • 4.7kg of sunflower cake
  • 3kg of fishmeal 2kg of lime
  • 3.4kg of soya meal
  • 40g of bone meal
  • 10g of grower PMX
  • 5g of salt
  • 5g of coccidiostat
  • 5g of Zincbacitrach
NOTE: For farmers who have more than 500 chickens, it is advisable to make 1 ton of feed at once (There are 14 bags of feed in one ton).

Therefore, to make 1 tonne of feed, all a farmer needs is to multiply each of the ingredients by 14. Ensure that all the feed you make will last for one month and not longer — this ensures the feed remains fresh and safe for chickens. Any feed that lasts more than one month may deteriorate in quality and can affect your chickens.

Daily Feed Requirements for each Growth Stage

Farmers should maintain the right feed quantities for chicken at each stage of growth as shown below:

— An egg-laying chicken requires 130-140g of feed per day.

— A chick requires a minimum 60g per day. If they finish their daily rations, give them fruit and vegetable cuttings to ensure they feed continuously.

— Young chickens (or pullets) which are about to start laying eggs should be fed 60g for 2 and ½ months and then put on layer diet (140g per day). Supplement the feed with vegetables, edible plant leaves and fruit peelings in addition to their feed rations.

— Broiler chicks require 67g per day. Broiler finishers require 67g of feed per day to the day of slaughter.

— Chickens are very sensitive to aflatoxins- never use rotten maize (maozo) while making feeds.

Where to buy ingredients

Farmers who need raw materials for feed making including feed additives (pre-mixes and amino acids) can order them from agro-veterinary shops nearest to them.

There are also companies doing calibration services for farmers who wish to make feeds in large scale farming enterprises and even for any farmer who requires these services.

How to Receive Mpesa Payments on a Website

M-pesa is now used by millions of people in Kenya. If you run a website or e-commerce store, it makes sense to integrate M-pesa payments on your website. There are several ways to achieve and this article examines two of the most popular methods currently available.



Method 1 - Apply for a Lipa Na Mpesa Till Number

This is the easiest way to request receive M-pesa payments on a website. It doesn't require any technical know-how. All you need to do is apply for an M-pesa Till Number from a Safaricom Dealer near you and then publish the Till Number on your website. When online buyers are "checking out" they complete an online form and then make payment. You then crosscheck the mobile number and M-pesa name, with the name and number they use to register on your website to verify the purchase.

The only drawback with this method is that it isn't automated. If you are selling digital goods, this is a cumbersome process that can actually damage your brand.

Method 2 - Use an M-pesa Payment Gateway



Depending on the Content Management System you use on your website, a payment gateway can be very easy or quite difficult to set up. There are several straightforward payment gateway plugins that run on WordPress. This method is, therefore, strictly for WordPress websites.

The suitability of the plugin will depend on the WordPress theme you are running. You may need to undertake some trial and error before you settle on an appropriate plugin for your WordPress Setup. Check out the pages below for more information.




Tips & Warnings
There are other more technical methods to get it done but unless you are a techie, we recommend these two methods. If they don't work for you, hire an expert to set up M-pesa payments on your website.

Brew Tea Longer to Reduce the Risk of Cancer and Dementia

Tea is, without a doubt, the most consumed beverage in Kenya. But, according to Dr. Stuart Farrimond, a UK food scientist, tea must be brewed for exactly five minutes to make it healthier and more delicious.

Tea is a source of polyphenols, which research has shown reduce the risk of cancer and dementia. The levels of caffeine and antioxidant levels increase the longer you brew your tea. So, once you add the tea leaves it is best to turn down the heat and let the tea simmer for five minutes before serving. If you are using tea bags, let the tea bag steep in the cup for at least five minutes before you drink the tea.

You should also avoid drinking tea from styrofoam cups, the kind used in drink dispensers which are a common feature in most offices in Kenya. Styrofoam cups absorb flavor molecules and reduce the benefits associated with drinking tea.

It is also best to use soft water to make tea as opposed to hard water. The calcium in hard water reacts with the tea flavor compounds reducing the benefits and tastiness.

According to several studies, tea brewed for only 30 seconds only contained 35 milligrams of caffeine, compared to a mug brewed for five minutes that contained 50 milligrams. Tea brewed longer also contains double the number of antioxidants.

Interestingly, there is also research that shows that tea from a red or pink mug tastes sweeter than tea drunk from a white or blue mug... it's a psychological issue!



Kenya Tea Facts


  • According to the Tea Board of Kenya, Tea consumption in Kenya 2016 was 29.75 Million Kgs 
  • Kenya tea is free of pests and/or diseases because it is produced without the use of agrochemicals. 
  • There are over 50 varieties of Kenyan tea. Each new variety developed enhances the health attributes attributed to tea. 
  • Only the best top two leaves and a bud are used in production.

How to Rate a Hangover

Only those who have been there can identify with this.........


One Star Hangover (*)

No pain. No real feeling of illness. You're able to function relatively well. However, you are still parched. You can drink 5 sodas and still feel this way. For some reason, you are craving kuku & fries.

Two Star Hangover (**)

No pain, but something is definitely amiss. You may look okay, but you have the mental capacity of a staple gun. The coffee you are chugging is only increasing your rumbling gut, which is still tossing around the fruity pancake from the 9:00 AM, Java excursion. There is some definite havoc being wreaked upon your bowels.

Three Star Hangover (***)

A slight headache. Stomach feels crappy. You are definitely not productive. Anytime a girl walks by you gag because her perfume reminds you of the madafu shots your alcoholic friends dared you to drink. Life would be better right now if you were home in your bed watching Cobra Squad reruns. You've had 4 cups of coffee, a liter of water, 3 iced teas and a diet Coke --- yet you haven't peed once.


Four Star Hangover (****)

Life sucks. Your head is throbbing. You can't speak too quickly or else you might puke. Your lecturer has already lambasted you for being late and has given you a lecture for reeking of booze. You wore nice clothes, but that can't hide the fact that you only shaved one side of your face. (For the ladies, it looks like you put your make-up on while riding the bumper cars.) Your eyes look like one big red vein,
and even your hair hurts. Your sphincter is in perpetual spasm, and the first of about five shits you take during the day brings water to the eyes of everyone who enters the bathroom.

Five Star Hangover(*****)

You have a second heartbeat in your head, which is actually annoying the employee who sits in the next cube. Vodka vapor is seeping out of every pore and making you dizzy. You still have toothpaste crust in the corners of your mouth from brushing your teeth in an attempt to get the remnants of the poop fairy out. Your body has lost the ability to generate saliva so your tongue is suffocating you. You don't have the foggiest idea who the hell the stranger was passed out in your bed this morning. Any attempt to defecate results in a fire hose like discharge of alcohol-scented fluid with a rare 'floater' thrown in. The sole purpose of this 'floater' seems to be to splash the toilet water all over your butt. Death sounds pretty good about right now....

How to Withdraw M-pesa from Airtel Line

If you own an Airtel line, you can still receive a Mpesa mobile money payment. An Airtel number is treated in the same manner as an unregistered Safaricom number. The person sending the money will follow the usual steps and receive a notification that the number is unregistered before they send the payment.



Once payment is sent, the sender will receive a confirmation message. The Airtel number will also receive a message from M-pesa containing a 4 digit code which they will use to withdraw money from an M-pesa agent.

How to Withdraw M-Pesa Agent




  1. Find an M-pesa agent
  2. Confirm the agent has sufficient funds for your transaction.
  3. Present the SMS containing the M-pesa voucher number (notification confirming receipt of cash).
  4. Give your Airtel phone number
  5. Show original ID.
  6. The agent will enter the 'one time code' that is displayed on the customer's SMS notification.
  7. Both the agent and the customer will receive an SMS confirming the transaction.
  8. The agent will give you your money and request you to sign the Log book which is a record of M-pesa transactions done in that store.

Driving on Kenyan Roads with a Foreign License

The conditions allowing one to drive on Kenyan roads using a foreign driving license are stipulated in Kenya's Traffic Act. Cap 403, Part IV, Section 31, Sub-Section 1A states,  "A licensing officer shall not grant an applicant a driving licence endorsed in respect of any class of motor vehicle unless the applicant - (a) satisfies the licensing officer that he has passed a test of competence to drive that class of motor vehicle conducted under section 39, or that he holds a certificate of competency for that class of motor vehicle issued under the Traffic Ordinance (now repealed), or is the holder of a valid driving licence for that class of motor vehicle granted by a competent authority in some part of the Commonwealth where such driving licences are granted only after a prescribed test has been passed or is the holder of an international driving permit."

This means that with a commonwealth license and an Aliens Card or Kenyan ID you can easily be issued a Kenyan license without taking any test.

Countries Whose Citizens are Allowed to Drive in Kenya

There are currently 53 countries in the membership of the Commonwealth of Nations. If your country is among the following countries, you can drive in Kenya with your local driving license.

Africa Asia Caribbean and Americas
Botswana Bangladesh Antigua and Barbuda
Cameroon Brunei Darussalam Bahamas, The
