Kadaknath chicken farming: Empowering Indian rural economy: A review

Lok Prakash Verma, Neetu Sonkar and Chandraprakash Verma
Indigenous/native breeds of chickens are playing an important role in rural economy in most of the developing countries. They play a major role for the rural poor and marginalized section of the society with respect to their subsidiary income and also provide them with nutritious chicken egg and meat for their own consumption. Kadaknath is an important indigenous poultry breed. It has huge meat demand due to its unique black meat. It has more disease resistance and high meat and egg price with 14 week finisher poultry breed. Price of Kadaknath meat is 2-3 times more than normal native poultry breed due to that same number of Kadaknath gives many fold profit than same number of other chicken breed with minimum land and feed requirement in free range condition with cost benefits ratio 15.67. That is very beneficial and helpful to strengthen rural people and help them to reduce dependency solely on crop farming and diversifying their source of income. This review concludes by presenting importance of Kadaknath to empowering rural economy.
