Abstract:

The present study was conducted to evaluate the productive performance, reproductive performance and egg quality traits of Kadaknath chicken at TANUVAS Regional Research and Educational Centre, Pudukkottai. The birds were maintained under semi-intensive system. The hen day egg production, hen housed egg production, fertility rate, hatchability on set egg and fertile egg hatchability were 34.34 ± 0.43, 34.24 ± 0.43, 91.11 ± 0.77, 73.89±1.43 and 80.95 ± 1.19, respectively. The egg weight, shell weight, albumin weight, yolk weight were 43.45 ± 2.32, 6.01±0.16, 23.04±1.72 and 14.71±0.57 grams, respectively. The shell thickness, shell percent, albumin percent, yolk percent, shape index percent, albumin index, yolk index and haugh unit were 0.36±0.01mm, 13.83 ± 0.39, 52.37 ± 1.27, 33.80 ± 1.02, 73.64 ± 1.15, 0.11 ±0.01, 0.44±0.01 and 87.28 ± 1.85, respectively.
