Interested in becoming our

Agent or farmer?


Farmers who purchase day old chicks (DOCs) from Uzima Chicken, brood the chicks for 30-45 days, and sell chicks to smallholder farmers in their local community. Agents receive extensive support from the Uzima Chicken’s team regarding technical management and marketing. 



 Farmers who buy brooded chickens from agents and rear SASSO to either sell or consume their eggs and meat. Males require 3 months total to reach market weight, while females will begin laying within 5 months.


Grace Nabawanuka Agent

The chickens are ready to sell after one month, compared to at least three months for crops - this cash flow gives us stability. Also, we used to eat only beef once in a while but now we have the chickens, which are cheaper.

Namaganda Maria Smallholder farmer

I have reared Uzima birds for about 6 months now. Uzima birds are easy to rear because the rate at which they get sick is fair. My investment is also low. I now get eggs and meat from the birds for my children to eat and sell some to the nearby customers.

Kasendwa Ambrose Agent

From the Uzima project, I have been able to acquire a plot of land. I hope for my project to grow bigger than it is now.

Mafuto Ali Agent

Besides school fees, I can now solve a problem of 300,000 Ug without getting quick loans. I have managed to buy a Boda that I use to market my birds. I have also constructed more poultry houses worth 2M from Uzima profits
