Organic Poultry farming aims at animal welfare with environmental and resource sustainability in poultry. With growing population, there is increase in demand of protein diet, farmer’s are in quest to use chemicals to maximize the weight gain and increase in egg productions but has paved way for decreased quality of egg and meat and also added to health issues in population mainly related to hormonal imbalance. To combat this, organic poultry production has come into limelight where use of housing systems allows natural behavior pattern (free rearing system) with consideration to animal welfare, use of renewable resources and organic food for feeding to save the environment and maintain a healthy food chain, use of preventive measures to maintain health thereby minimizing the use of therapeutic agents.
