CPU 2015-5: Production Practices of the Native Chicken Growers in Western Visayas

This study was conducted to determine the production practices of native chicken growers in the top three native chicken municipalities in Western Visayas. This is a purely descriptive study that utilized the one-shot survey design. Multi-stage sampling technique was used to identify the study respondents. Face to face interview of the native chicken raisers was conducted. Data analysis was purely descriptive. Results show that there are specific areas in the region where the production of native chicken predominates. The income of the native chicken growers is relatively low, as native chicken production is still a backyard family economic undertaking with limited marketable product volume. The growers have an average of 16.2 heads of hens and 4.4 heads of roosters for breeding. Their breeders, mostly home grown, were mostly upgraded native chicken, followed by Darag and Jolo. Native chickens are generally raised in free range. The usual feedstuff consisting of corn/cracked corn, rice bran, home mixed ration, filled/unfilled palay, and rice/milled rice were more or less the same for pullets, cockerels, hens, and roosters; but amount varies depending on the stage of growth of chickens.
