I have been hearing about Kuroiler and sometimes Kroiler chicken. What is it? Is it a Kienyenji chicken. Can it withstand the conditions of Kenya. Is Kuroiler kept for meat or eggs?
Kuroiler is a dual-purpose breed producing meat and eggs. It can be reared on a free range and live on a diet of kitchen and agricultural waste. It produces around 150 eggs per year. The meat yield per bird of Kuroilers is approximately 3.5 kg for cocks and about 2.5 kg for hens.
Kuroiler is quite resistant to diseases compared to the parent birds. It was introduced in Kenya earlier this century from Indian through Uganda.
