Has anyone on this list tried out the feeds called 'Kienyeji Mash' ?
My supplier claims I can use that to replace growers mash for my kienyeji kukus.

Somebody who knows how to make layers mash should organize a seminar and teach farmers - for a fee of course.

There was an article on how to make own feeds in yesterday's nation. Has anyone tried the formula?

If you have eaten a handful of spicy chicken wings in Angola recently or perhaps polished off a lemony "yassa poulet" in Senegal, there is a good chance your chicken travelled some distance before finding its way on to your plate.
It depends where you live in Africa, but chickens are increasingly migrating - in freezers - from Brazil, Germany or other European Union countries to the continent.
Imports of chicken to sub-Saharan Africa tripled between 2004 and 2014, according to figures from the US Department of Agriculture.

Have a question and cannot really get the answer relating to raising layers. What quantity of food would the layers eat per day starting from chick until it starts laying eggs? What are the percentages of protein, vitamins etc in the commercial feeds?
