Raising chickens is a great way of generating income as well as providing nutrition for the family. In Uganda one chicken cost one US dollar, plus the cost of the poultry house, ongoing feeds and immunizations. After 6 months, a chicken will lay for one year and can then be sold for meat for $3US dollars. During that year it will produce about 280 eggs that also can be sold. After taking away costs plus allowing for the family to have some eggs, one chicken can generate $20 for that year.

$US 10 dollars will buy 10 Chickens generating $200
