You can easily build a poultry House for your Kuroiler Chicken using locally available material.

The principle is that the house should be large enough for the birds to fit and secure from predators.

You can build your poultry houses with either bricks or wooden poles or Tree cuttings “Makoko”.

Of importance your Kuroiler house should be well ventilated to allow enough airing in the house.

The biggest part should be constructed with wire mesh.

Below are some standard measurements for the various number of chicks stock:

1000 birds:34ft by 60ft/22ftby 60ft
300 birds: 16ft by 25ft
100 birds: 10ft by 15ft

You should strive to construct your poultry house within that range , depending on the the number of birds you're planning to raise.

About Litter

For litter, you can put coffee husks or wood husks depending on the type easily available and accessible to you.

Dirty Litter, Ensure that you remove the dirty litter when it has gas/fumes coming out of it.

Ensure that water does not spill on the husks whether wood or coffee husks.

Player Stickers

Put player stickers in the houses for the chicks to play on. These are usually wooden

Nests for Laying Eggs

Ensure the size of the Nests are big enough and that there is enough darkness so the other chicken do not see when your kuroiler hens are laying eggs.

Infection Control

Basin of Disinfectant: Put this Basin for people to step in before they enter your poultry houses, this way you will keep disease away from your farm.

Fencing your poultry house

Fence off an area where your kroilers can graze and scavenge on free range. Have various paddocks.

Grow the following weeds/Plant that are palatable to kuroiler chicken: Kifuta, Enanda, Kafumbe, Pasparum, Yam leaves, Kikunyu grass e.t.c…

Names of Grass

You recommended grass palatable to kuroiler chicken; but, unfortunately, you gave the names in Kiganda. Can you give English names (or Kiswahili, if possible). I am from Tanzania.
