Backyard chickens concept is very popular in rural areas of Pakistan. It not only provides fresh and high quality protein i.e. eggs and meat, but also helps to generate some extra income for families. People prefer to keep indigenous chicken instead of commercial breeds, in spite of their low production. The main reason behind this is that our people prefer using the eggs and meat of indigenous chickens over commercial breeds and ready to pay more for them. Our poultry experts advocate the use of eggs and meat of commercial breeds from poultry farms, but our people are still not ready for that.
