Abstract:

To explore the productivity of caponized local chicken, an experiment was carried out with thirty (30) numbers of healthy caponized local chicken cockerels of Assam of about 7-8 months of age (210 ± 10 days) for a period of six months. The capons were randomly divided into three groups (T1, T2 and T3) of ten numbers each. One nutritional treatment was adopted for two groups (T2 and T3) with formulated grower ration of poultry (CP 16.41% and ME 2650 Kcal/ kg). The control group (T1) was reared in backyard condition with minimum supplementary feed. The average fortnightly change in body weight of capons of T3 was found to be significantly higher than T2 and T1 after 6 months of experimental period. The body weight gain was significant (P<0.05) between T3 and T1 as well as T2 and T1. The feed conversion efficiency of capons was more in cage system (T3).
