Abstract

With increase in population, the demand for protein is increasing. Poultry being a good source of protein and yet cheap makes it an affordable commodity for general people. Poultry rearing gives chances to economical weaker section of society to gain profits however principal constraint to profitability is the high mortality rate in young chicks, due to a combination of disease, predation, malnutrition and climatic exposure. Backyard poultry farming can be of utmost importance in such situations because mostly indigenous breeds are reared in this type of farming and such breeds are resistant to harmful environmental conditions. Other interventions involving vaccination of the flock against disease have been demonstrated to impact dramatically on survival of the birds and on household food security and profitability.
