Yasmin Mussaddeq , Shakeela Daud and Shamim Akhtar

Abstract:
The study was conducted to determine the economical performance of cross chicken (RIR x FAY). For this purpose four different recipes/ration R1, R2, R3 and R4 were offered to the chicken. The laying and hatching performance of these birds were observed for two months of the conduct of experiment. The results indicated that the birds reared on commercial feed and concentrate pack based ration showed the best egg production, feed conversion ratio and hatch ability. The birds reared on rations based on cereal mixture and wheat bread/bran had comparatively poor performance. The birds maintained on wheat bread/bran that had comparatively better performance than raw cereals, which could be attributed to better digestibility of wheat bread/bran. The overall results indicated that cross chicken maintained on balanced nutrition had a direct influence on their productive and reproductive performance. It was also observed that the feeding of cross chicken on ration prepared through concentrate packs was most economical in rural areas.
