Abstract:

A study was undertaken to assess different productive and reproductive performances of Desi, Kamrupa and Vanaraja chicken under traditional system amongst tribal community of Lower Brahmaputra Valley Zone of Assam. Information on mean body weight at various ages groups, age at first egg, annual egg production, mortality rate, fertility and hatchability were obtained from farmers under the study. Significant (P≤0.05) differences were observed amongst the three breeds of chicken in terms of body weight, egg production and egg weight. The age at first egg was significantly (P≤0.05) higher in Desi chicken compared to Vanaraja and Kamrupa. But, no significant (P≤0.05) differences were found among all three groups of birds in terms of fertility, hatchability and mortality from 31st -52nd weeks of age except at the early age group. These evaluated performances of birds will help farmers to rear the right choice of chicken for their livelihood and also for sustainable backyard chicken farming in their locality.
