All fieldwork has now been completed. The eight villages selected to take part in the study have now been visited a total of 4 times each over the last two years. Eighty households in each village have been interviewed, and had two of their chickens examined. This gives us a grand total of 640 households, and 1280 chickens sampled!
In addition, 520 of those households selected to take part were revisited 6 months after they were initially recruited to the study. This enabled us to find out what happened to the chickens we sampled, and will allow us to look for factors which may predict which chickens are more likely to survive.
