MODEL NATIVE CHICKEN FARM: Package of Technology Being Developed

Native Chickens.
A package of technology for the production of Darag native chicken is being developed at the Capiz State University (CapSU) in Dumarao, Capiz. This is a two-year project that started in April 2016, funded by the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development (PCAARRD).

The project aims to develop a Science and Technology Model Farm (STMF) that will showcase the package of technology (POT) for free-range chicken production. The POT includes development of a native chicken breeding and hatchery management system. This will ensure stable supply of both breeder and slaughter native chickens with predictable performance and consistent quality in commercial quantities.

The POT will also include natural feeds, botanical dewormers, vaccine for New Castle Disease (NCD) and range area enhancement protocol for native chicken production. The science and technology interventions will also give special emphasis on artificial incubation and brooding. (Press Release)
