Abstract:

A study was conducted in the Mid-Central Table Land zone of Odisha involving Angul and Dhenkanal districts to assess the performance of different backyard poultry breeds which includes existing non-descript desi breeds and improved breeds like Vanaraja, Pallishree, Aseel and Kadaknath. Ten farmers from both the districts were covered under the study. Parameters like mean body weight at different ages, age at first egg, annual egg production and mortality rate etc. along with economic parameters were studied apart from qualitative parameters like consumer preference, price offered. The result indicated that Vanaraja showed better annual egg production and Pallishree gained better body weight at 20thweek. The economics showed highest net return in case of Kadaknath and highest BC ratio in case of desi birds. Even though the two strains Vanaraja and Pallishree performed well with respect to meat and egg production, Aseel is the most preferred breed for backyard condition by the farmers due its external appearance, consumer preference, self defence from predators followed by Kadaknath which are next to Desi breeds.
