Last updated: 19 September, 2010
Srirangapatna(Mandya), Sep 19, DHNS:

Unemployment makes man think different and how! Here is a perfect example for this, where a youth has achieved success in breeding desi chicken in large scale.


Studying the market demand for the meat of country chicken which is popularly called as ‘naati koli’, Manohar of Srirangapatna has set up a farm and has paved way for the business for youths alike.

The eggs of naati koli are bought and hatched. Though he failed four times, he did not lose his determination and is on the way to success for the fifth time. The eggs are hatched after keeping them in the incubator. Presently, he has around 3,500 country chicken at his farm.
The country chicken needs 120 to 150 days for breeding and is priced double than the farm bred chicken. Manohar who is hoping of reaping profit has also plans to breed Emu birds.
He told Deccan Herald that he has indulged in the business, though it is expensive. He takes the help of internet to seek more information and methods. He has successfully completed related training in Hyderabad.

Some traders are duping people selling colour birds as ‘naati koli’. The customers should take caution while purchasing fowls, he suggests. He also plans of selling these farm bred country fowls in discounted price to the farmers.
