Improving Village Chicken Production: A Manual for Field Workers and Trainers


This manual aims to provide, for extension workers and livestock officers, basic information on the production of traditional village chickens and how productivity can be improved by introducing appropriate, low-cost approaches. It describes the initial steps that can be taken to improve village chicken production. The manual is designed as a practical reference tool for extension workers, livestock officers and field veterinarians and can be used in training programme and courses. It is subdivided into three main parts: Part 1: Village chicken and village chicken farmers; Part 2: Housing, nutrition and management; Part 3: Disease and their control. Each part is composed of a series of chapters and each chapter details improvements that could be applied by village chicken producers. The key extension messages of each chapter are summarised at its start.
