A Noiler mother unit is a poultry farmer that is responsible for rearing Noiler day-old chicks (DOCs) for sale to small-holder poultry farmers. Mother units typically run medium to large-scale operations and have the expertise to raise birds from day old stage. Mother units play an important role in the Noiler model as the brood, feed, and vaccinate Noiler day-old chicks till they are 5 weeks, at a stage any small holder farmer can handle with minimal care.
Mother units also help to maintain the quality of Noiler birds received from Amo Farm Sieberer Hatchery Limited by rearing Noiler DOCs in a controlled environment ensuring that the birds are healthy and have the best possible start in life. This results in Noiler birds that are more productive and have better meat quality.
