Abstract:

The rapid growth of poultry sector in our country during the last 3 to 4 decades has been almost exclusively dependent on appearance of intensive or commercial type poultry enterprise, often located in urban or periurban areas. Rural and tribal areas have received little attention in this sector, creating a large gap in the availability of highly nutritious egg, chicken and meat between urbanites and malnourished rural / tribal people. Only the solution is backyard farming in rural and tribal areas. The backyard farming will certainly improve the economic status of a large majority of tribal rural" families from lower socio-economic stratain the rural / tribal areas. Backyard farming fulfills a wide range of functions - e.g. the provision of meat and eggs, food for special festivals, chicken for traditional ceremonies, pest control and petty cash-while requiring minimal external inputs, minimal human attention, and causing minimal disruption to the environment. Vanaraja does not perform very efficiently in terms of eggs and meat production. However, meat and eggs of Vanaraja are preferred by the local consumers. This hybrid is also readily accepted by the rural farmers owing to its similarity of the typical appearance of the local birds and characteristically very low operational cost but significant returns under the existing methods of rearing in the rural areas.
