Indigenous chicken breeds were an important contributor to the human food and on the other hand which were an important source of valuable genes. Especially, in Asia and Africa lots of different local chicken breeds exist, but few is known about their quality. The present paper reports on an experiment to research the effect of slaughter time on slaughter and meat quality characteristics at 4 ages (90, 120, 150, 180 d) for Chinese Caoke chicken though measure the carcass characteristic and meat quality index. Overall assessment the results shown that the optimum meat quality age for roosters and hens were on 120 d 150 d, respectively. The results of this study will be beneficial for the breeders and consumers.
