Poultry Development

Poultry farming is one of the age old farming activity adopted by the tribal farmers of the state to substantiate their income. Poultry development in the state of Arunachal Pradesh has attained a tremendous revolution from only one farm in Nirjuli in the recent decade with mushrooming of Broiler farms in every corners of the state. The state is now self reliant in terms of poultry meat, however the egg production has been lagging behind. The Department of Animal Husbandry & Veterinary runs a Central Hatchery at Nirjuli, Itanagar through which the need of broiler chick are provided to the poultry farmers in the state. Altogether there are 13 District Poultry Farms in the state which caters the requirement of quality broiler chick and broiler birds. These District Poultry Farms in the Districts acts a straining centre for the broiler farmers and facilitating centre for quality chicks. The department plans to invigorate Hatchery capacity of the 13 District Poultry Farms so that quality broiler chicks are available for the poultry farmers in the district headquarters.
