A little-known Indian variety of genetically bred chicken called Kuroiler is proving to be a productivity champion.
A study presented at the American Veterinary Medical Association meeting in Saint Louis, Missouri, USA showed that the Kuroiler chicken meat yield per bird is very high as male birds weighed 3 kg against 1.5-2 kg for their native (US) counterparts. Kuroiler hens can deliver around 200 eggs per year compared with
40 by the native hens. The birds are also resistant to disease.
