Abstract

In Nepal, more than 65% of people depend upon agriculture. Contribution of agricultural sector in Gross Domestic product (GDP) of Nepal is 33%. Among them contribution of livestock sector in total GDP is 26.8% and poultry sub sector within livestock contributes 8% of Agriculture Gross Domestic product (AGDP) and Indigenous poultry is widely prevalent which contributes 55% of total poultry population. Poultry can convert feed efficiently in short period of time and give income in short time of period. But Nepal, Village farmers lack knowledge about poultry health and Poor husbandry practices limit production as well as income generation. Indigenous breeds of Nepal are Shakini, Ghanti khuile and Pwankh Ulte. If we are able to do Genetic improvement through selection as well as improve health husbandry, we can significantly increase the production. So for the improvement of the indigenous breed of poultry, we need to identify some economically important traits of indigenous breed which can be improved. Some important traits of indigenous breeds of poultry are Total eggs per clutch and good mothering ability. This paper is the literature review related to the Socio-economic importance of Indigenous Poultry in Nepal.
