Poultry Farming has been one of the most important subsidiary occupations of the farming community in India.

Poultry Farming is a remunerative business both in rural and urban areas due to the requirement of small space, low capital investment and quick return throughout the year.

It has a significant role in the eradication of malnutrition and poverty as well as eliminating un- and under-employment among the rural masses. However, due to the lack of a modern and updated method of farming, farmers are practicing their own way which has been found to be unproductive and not commercially viable.
