Abstract:

A comparative study on physical growth and blood parameter was investigated between Kadaknath and Chabro chickens. A total of 100 day old chicks, 50 of Kadaknath and 50 of Chabro birds were used in the study. Chabro as coloured birds gained significantly higher (P < 0.001) body weight comparison to Kadaknath as 861 ± 4.36 and 338 ± 3.99 respectively. The haemoglobin concentration was significantly (P < 0.05) higher in Kadaknath (12.36 ± 0.09) than Chabro (9.6 ± 0.36). Cholesterol content in Chabro (101.26 ± 1.93) was significantly (P < 0.001) higher than Kadaknath (101.26 ± 1.93). It was concluded that although weight gain was higher in Chabro birds but quality of meat of Kadaknath was much higher than Chabro and fetch higher price to farmers keeping scenario of market preferences.

Highlights

  • Study on Kadaknath and Chabro birds body weight and haemato-biochemical parameters.
  • Kadaknath is a geo tag bird of Madhya Pradesh.
