Phenotypic characterization of animals they have designed and/or adapted classical general methodologies, such as those proposed in the 40s up to other more recent years. The FAO guidelines are also taken into account in their descriptors of poultry species. In this regard, measures morphometric and phaneroptic features are logged. The present study aims to classify local hens taking into consideration the morphometric characters. The work was carried out in the community of La Trinidad… 

Características Morfométricas de las Gallinas Criollas de Comunidades Rurales del Sur del Ecuador MORPHOMETRIC CHARACTERISTICS OF INDIGENOUS CHICKEN IN RURAL COMMUNITIES OF SOUTHERN ECUADOR

The present study aimed to study the morphological variability of indigenous chicken in the south of Ecuador. A total of 200 adult individuals (31 males and 169 females) were characterized with the

CARACTERÍSTICAS FENOTÍPICAS DE LAS GALLINAS CRIOLLAS DE COMUNIDADES RURALES DEL SUR DEL ECUADOR

A set of 200 individuals were characterized morphologically, with the help of morphometric descriptors and faneropticas characteristics proposed by FAO (1987) and employed by Lazarus in 2012 in Cuba to study the genetic variability of poultry genetic resources.

Analysis of rural egg production to improve the economy of the Andean communities in Ecuador

La prevalencia del virus de Newcastle en pollos nativos de las comunidades rurales en el sur de Ecuador

El analisis estadistico demostro, que existe asociacion entre la prevalencia del virus de Newcastle y los biotipos criollos, barbona y enana, mostraron una prevalencia menor a la reportada por otras investigaciones en Sudamerica, en gallinas criollsas mantenidas bajo sistemas tradicionales de crianza.

Characterization of local chicken production systems and their potential under different levels of management practice in Jordan

Hatchability, survivability, flock size, number of clutches, egg weight and egg mass were the major parameters that improved significantly with improvement in management level, and there were positive significant correlations between management level and chickens’ performance.

Study of the live body weight and body characteristics of the African Muscovy duck (Caraina moschata)

Three hundred and twenty 1-week old ducklings were used to evaluate the body weight, body parts and carcass characteristics of the African Muscovy duck and sexual dimorphism was in favour of the male for all the parameters throughout the experimental period.

Village chicken production offers diverse functional outputs but faces animal health (diseases, parasites, predation) and management (feeding) constraints, which require an integrated intervention approach at community and household level.
