Carrying out vaccinations to the birds prior to the distribution of day old chicken is crucial to reduce contanination of deseases to hte newly distributed birds. At present this crucial exercise is not done hence these birds motality is high especially during the epidemic seasons where chicken die at 100%.

The birds are distributed without any traceability. Meaning that the day old chickens are being sourced from unknown or authorized sources.

No monitoring and evalutions is being done hence no performance statistics are available of the assistance.
