Abstract:
The present study was conducted to analyze the rearing knowledge of poultry farming which includes selection of eggs, hatching, brooding of chicks, vaccination and preparation of feed with locally available materials and socio economic status of rural women in backyard poultry farming with improved breeds in two selected villages of Vijayapura district. Thirty women beneficiaries were selected and they were trained in different management practices of poultry rearing such as preparation of poultry feed with locally available seeds and Azolla cultivation. Forty Swarnadhara chicks which were brooded for four weeks and vaccinated against the three important diseases (Marek disease, Ranikhet disease and infectious bursal disease) were supplied for each beneficiary. The women actively participated in poultry rearing activities under natural conditions in villages with locally available facilities. It was found that there is considerable increase in egg yield and body weight gain as it is a dual purpose breed.
