Production performance of different exotic and native crossbreds chickens

An experiment was conducted with 350 layer birds for a period of 20-48 weeks. BPRxRIR, RIRxBPR, RIRxWR, R1RxWLH, WRxRIR, NNxWLH and DxWLH. crossbreds chickens which were divided into 7 treatments having 5 replications for each treatment. The number of birds in each replication was 10. Each group was reared in cages and there were three birds in each cage. Body weight differed significantly (p<0.05) among the groups. The highest body weight was found in WRxRIR. RIRxWLH crossbred produced highest number of eggs (77.28%) followed by RIRxBPR (72.76%), NNxWLH (72.18%), DxWLH (69.48%), RIRxWR (69.38%), BPRxRIR( 68.44%) and WRxRIR ( 63.74%) which were statistically non-significant. Egg weight differed significantly (p<0.05) among the crossbred. The highest egg weight was found in RIRxWR (65.60) and RIRxBPR crossbreds (65.60g). Feed intake among the crossbreds was non-significant while, FCR differed significantly (p< 0.05) among the crossbreds. The highest FCR was found in group NNxWLH crossbred (2.84). Mortality % among the crossbreds was non-significant.
