Chicken Rearing

Chickens are an important source of income in Naitolia, especially for women and girls. Yet, annually many household chickens die from preventable diseases. TPP began an initiative to improve productivity in household chicken rearing in 2018 based on community feedback. TPP worked with Community Animal Health Workers Committee members and Yandu Marmo from the district to co-identify project indicators and launch the intervention. Households with low productivity in chicken rearing received training on coop design, predation protection, and disease control. Over 200 chickens were dewormed and more than 400 were vaccinated in 2018 and 1,709 chickens were vaccinated in 2019.
