Findings
Findings

  • About 500 HHs in the kebele

  • 350 MHH (70%) & 150 FHH (30%)

  • About 70% keep poultry

  • Both local and improved breeds

Find…

  • Major constraints:

    • Poultry disease/ lack of vet services

    • Inputs such as feeds, pullets, etc.

    • Training

    • Extension services (no follow up)

  • No differences in ownership patterns b/n MHH & FHHs

    • But mainly managed by women & youths

  • No differences in breed preferences b/n MHH & FHHs

  • Both prefer improved breeds as compared to locals

  • They buy eggs of improved hens from their own area (considering that the hen is good layer) and they incubate it with local hens (reduce mortality and female birds obtained in such way are good brooders)


Find…

  • Marketing decisions - is mainly by women

  • Parents transfer some of their chicken to their children/youth

  • Any household member has a right to sell his/her own and manage the money

  • Division of labor:

    • Construction of poultry houses by males

    • Cleaning & other routine management activities by women

    • Children also do the routine management activities


Find…

  • Different management practices:

    • Improved management for improved breeds

    • Locals – left for free roaming
