Continuing this week’s theme of domesticated animals, I am focussing on poultry in Teso in north eastern Uganda today. They are a very important source of a little extra income. They are also killed to eat when visitors come and are often given as a gift. I have had so many chickens over the years! The chickens are not of any particular breed, so come in a wonderful range of colours and patterns. Hens are excellent mothers, protecting their chicks from birds of prey and stray dogs. Turkeys and ducks are also kept by a few people.
