Abstract:

The present study was undertaken to study thesocio-economic status of Khadia Chicken rearers along with phenotypic characteristics Khadia Chicken in two tribal districts of Northern Odisha. The sample size constituted two hundred households rearing 1435 Khadia chicken. The study revealed that 72.5 % of the poultry rearers earned Rs.20,000 per year which is a substantial amount to support their livelihood. The qualitative characteristics like plumage colour, shank colour, skin colour, wattle type, comb type and fighting characteristics are quite distinct than the other native chicken of Odisha. The quantitative characteristics such as annual egg production, egg weight, fertility, body weight, mortality, shank length and keel length are different from the registered native breed of Odisha-Hansli. The results showed that annual egg production of Khadia native chicken averaged to 70.7 ± 1.26 and fertility was found 80.41 ± 1.38 %.  The male adult body weight was 1839.5 ± 22.274 g and adult female weight 1388.75±10.96 g. The shank length in male is 1.12 ± 0.22 cm whereas the females shank length 9.78 ± 0.24 cm. These research-outcomes may serve as baseline information for the academicians, researchers and breeders for chalking out future breeding strategy for improvement of native chicken.
