Poultry مرغداری

  • Poultry are a common household animal and an often undervalued source of nutrition and income. Poultry are often raised by women and children.

Problems and Opportunities

  • Priority problems of poultry production in Afghanistan are disease (especially Newcastle Disease), lack of housing (which means birds are lost to predators and bird health is difficult to monitor) and adequate nutrition.
  • Priority Opportunities are vaccinate chickens against disease (especially Newcastle Disease), provide housing, improve practices for introducing new birds (isolate for two weeks) and improve nutrition. Note: Once Newcastle Disease is better managed, other diseases such as coccidiosis, infectious bursal disease, and ectoparasites (such as mites) will become the next major limitations.
