Abstract
The financial losses incurred by poultry farmers are normally much higher than is generally realized, and at intervals may reach such proportions that not only do running expenses show a deficit, but large inroads are made into working capital through the decimation of flocks by disease. Even on farms that show a profit, such losses are often considered unavoidable and incidental to the business of breeding, hatching, rearing,and maintaining flocks of high egg-laying strains. I hope in this article to focus the attention of East African poultry keepers on some of their main sources of loss, and, by doing so, to indicate where a greater concentration of effort is most likely to be repaid.
