Pre Event Description :
During the programme poultry chicks were distributed to 150 farmers of the village for promotion of backyard poultry and upliftment of socio-economic welfare of tribal people. Backyard poultry production is an age old practice in rural India. The potentiality of indigenous birds in terms of egg production is only 70 to 80 eggs/ bird/ year and meat production is also very less. However, the backyard poultry production can be easily boost up with improved varieties of chicken such as Nerbeek, Chabro, Kadarnath, Davindera whose fecundity rate is about 190-200/ eggs/ bird/ year and can promise a better production of meat and egg, he said. To improve the socio-economic status of the traditional farmers, backyard poultry is a handy enterprise with low-cost initial investment, but high economic return along with guarantee for improving protein deficiency among the poor as poultry is an essential source of different nutritional components like proteins, fats, amino acids and vitamins.
