Title : Local chicken production system in East Nusa Tenggara Provinve- Indonesia


Local chicken in Indonesia is found in huge number distributed across different region. Most of the farmer rear chickens under a traditional family-based scavenging management system. The birds are left to scavenge in the backyard or in the garden, and are provided with limited facilities such as a simple cage, a small amount of food scraps, and no diseases prevention program. Hatching is done naturally, so the production takes more time and production per year is low. The number of chickens breeder is still low because of feed shortage. Most of the feed used is the feed which compete with human consumption. Therefore, the farmers have to find alternative feed ingredients that are beneficial to the local poultry.. Therefore, there is a need to improve the management system of rearing chickens village. Small-scale intensive chickens rearing system is one of the methods in reducing various problems and improving performance and production of chicken village. The programs involved were: training, workshop, demonstration and application programs in feeding management system, housing management system, and diseases prevention management system. This activities design applying innovative technology to do the extension, practice, mentoring and result evaluation of breeder management, handling the incubator, handling day old chicks and raising chicks until finisher period. The result showed that average of egg production increased, hatch technology could be implemented correctly with average of hatchability was 85.85%, mortality rate of 2 weeks old chickens was decreased up to 3.76%. Mortality rate of 2 months old chickens was 0.68% with average body weight of 1075.3 grams. It can be concluded that the community services programs was very essential tool for profitable and sustainable local chickens farming system in East Nusa Tenggara Provinve Indonesia.
