Abstract:
The present study was carried out to develop a new location-specific rural poultry variety in Chhattisgarh. There were four groups: T1 (native), T2 (PB2), and T3 (native x PB2 reared at the farm) (native x PB2 reared in the farmer’s backyard). The significance (p<0.05) difference was reported in cumulative weight gain of 0-20 weeks of age. (T1, T2, T3 and T4; 922.59±26.95 g, 2858.01±129 g, 1897.20±53.5 g and 1278.96±171.1 g respectively). The least (p<0.05) average daily gain was recorded for T1 (6.90±2.36 g), followed by T4 (9.12±1.22) and T3 (13.54±0.38), whereas the highest for T2 (19.93±0.74 g). The dressing percent of T1, T2, T3 and T4 was reported as 70.66±2.50, 72.43±1.41, 71.65±1.76, and 69.82±1.47, respectively. In the experiment, the significantly (p<0.05) highest breast percentage was found in T4, whereas the highest (p<0.05) leg and wing percentage was recorded in T1. In the organoleptic test, overall acceptance score of T3 meat was significantly (p<0.05) higher as compared to T2 and T1.
