The purpose of the study was to evaluate the contribution of backyard farming in the livelihood of tribal farmers in the Paroja community, to assess the socio-economic aspects of tribal farmers. A total of 221 respondents were chosen at random from two blocks in the Koraput district i.e, Laxmipur and Dashmantpur. Through the participatory rural appraisal method, data was collected directly from respondents through a questionnaire schedule. According to the data, the majority of farmers were male, belonged to the older age group, had low educational qualifications (primary or middle level schooling), and had small or medium flock sizes. Backyard poultry farming had a moderate impact on farmers' social welfare. The chi-square test revealed a significant (p<0.05) dependency between the parameters education and flock size.
