Hi anyone into Nati or Giriraja or Swarnadhara chicken rearing around Bangalore.
If anyone has researched, attempted or are successfully doing it can share some insight into the below points.
some info based out of research and personal survey, plz comment if its incorrect.
a. Nati chicks are not avlbl in large quantities ( yes they wr avlbl a year back or so but now I cld not find any chick sellers) in any case if they are avlbl they wld be too costly around 75-100/chick. So guess need to create our own parent stock.
b. Giriraja chicks are avlbl at veterinary college hebbal for around 12-14/chick
c. Swarnadhara chicks, even they are avlbl at veterinary college hebbal, but not sure of the cost.
Marketing, selling of birds—
a. Nati chicken has huge demand at the chicken stalls in/around Bangalore, infact last couple of months there are no proper supplies so the stall owners are getting them from Andra at additional cost.(transport)
b. Giriraja chicken is gaining popularity due to the unavailability of Nati chicken.
C. Swarnadhara chicken …not know
a. Nati birds due to demand supply gap are been sold at 400-500/bird at the village markets around Bangalore/Mysore.
b. Giriraja chicken is sold at 250-300/kg at retail.
c. Swarnadhara chicken …price not know
(including chik price, transport, medicine, feed cost, labor cost, etc)
anything else that has to be considered.
I’m planning to start rearing any of the above(after checking feasibility and market avlblity) in a small batch of say 100-200 nos for additional income frm my farm.
Also hav heard that the guy who earns 22lakhs/annum from 2.1 acres nr Doddabalapura is rearing 250 nos Griraja and get a revenue of 1 lakh for every three months.
Any inputs wld be highly appreciated.
