Comparison of the performance of Nigerian indigenous chickens from three agro-ecological zones



Comparison of the performance of Nigerian indigenous chickens from three agro-ecological zones



Livestock Research for Rural Development 13(2): 1-5



Nigerian indigenous chicken (NIC) from three agroecological zones (Rain Forest, RF; Derived Savanna, DS; and Guinea Savanna, GS) were evaluated for age at first egg, egg production and egg weight, percent hen-day egg production and percent laying mortality. Data for this work were collected over a period of 72 weeks. A total of 579 eggs from DS and RF zones and 505 growers from DS, GS and RF were evaluated.
