Research overview:
The pasturage farming adaptabilities of four chicken species (Nera, Bovans Brown, Isa Brown and Rhode) were compared. The survival ratio was in a decreasing order of Nela, Bovans, Isa and Rhode while the egg production ratio was in a decreasing order of Bovans, Nela, Isa and Rhode. In the comparison with cage farming, Rhode gave the least difference in the egg production ratio. The egg quality was not dependent on either farming method or species.
