Abstract:

A study was undertaken to evaluate the indigenous chicken of Belagaum division of Karnataka State, India for performance and morphological characters pertaining to three districts namely; Bijapur, Belagaum and Dharawad, both under field conditions and under farm conditions. Survey was conducted in three districts and the data was recorded as per NBAGR proforma. The evaluation of birds under farm conditions revealed that, the body weight of birds belonging to Bijapur and Belagaum were significantly higher at all age groups compared to Dharawad district. Significant differences were noticed in hen housed egg production and in survivor’s egg production up to 52 weeks of age. The birds of Bijapur district showed good survivability compared to other two districts. The birds of all the three districts under study showed very good ELISA titres against New Castle disease at all the stages of life.
