Indigenous hens are usually reared at home which not only provide eggs for domestic needs but also slaughter them when needed and use their meat. Buy a few female chickens from a hen house and buy one or two male chickens as required. The chicks are taken or the eggs are obtained and placed under a roosting hen and the chicks are taken out from them which are then reared after a long and patient test and extreme hardship.

Less than half of the hens are usually able to lay eggs, which they feed on a nominal diet and lay their own eggs, as the traditional hens do not pay special attention to the cleanliness of their environment and therefore prevent the spread of diseases in them. There is also a lot of fear and sometimes many chickens die. The average production of domestic chickens is 70 to 80 eggs per year.
Taking into account all these factors in which their hereditary traits are involved in the special process of care and food during production, poultry experts have planned to run poultry in a new way at home or in rural areas. As hens that have completed their first production year can be reconditioned and kept at home to obtain eggs. These hens have great traits in terms of their lineage and are unique to domestic chickens. These hens are capable of laying more than 200 eggs a year. Since these hens have spent one production year laying eggs and have undergone a complete course of immunizations during their care and rearing and production, they are prone to infectious diseases. The immune system is also quite high.
So in the next production period of reconditioning, their performance remains satisfactory in our rural environment. The eggs obtained from reconditioned chickens are much larger in size than the native eggs and are very high from the first egg to the last. Reasonable size eggs are obtained till the end.
Thanks to the reconditioning technique, the difficulties and complications that occur in the early stages of the age of the chicks have been removed, during which the chickens were lost in large numbers in the early stages and the cost has gone up considerably. And most of all you have to wait at least six to seven months for income while with reconditioned chickens you start getting eggs from the first day and sell more eggs than you need at home to your neighbors etc. Thus, just as this technique of reconditioning has revolutionized commercial farming, rural poultry will also benefit from its benefits and its quality of life can be greatly improved by increasing the daily income of the rural population.
Initially, domestic poultry should be started with at least 15 reconditioned chickens and regular accommodation should be arranged for them. It would be better to put an iron grate on the floor and it should be at least one foot above the ground so that the hens’ nests and feathers can fall on the plastic sheet lying on the ground below and the hens can be protected from any kind of dirt and disease. Large holes should be avoided to allow birds and other birds to enter.
It is better to keep the derby in the ski room at night so that the chickens can be protected from the effects of the weather and can be kept in the derby during the day in winter and thus during the day. Enjoy the sun. Remember that chickens should not be taken out of the derby under any circumstances, but the derby should be pushed in or out, including the hens. In the first part of the day, when the hens are kept in the sun, Clean slices and free slices Poultry can be laid while in the afternoon they will be provided three-fourths of the total feed requirement in the form of commercial feed. Approximately one kilogram of commercial feed per day will be suitable for 15 reconditioned chickens.
Install food and water containers outside the derby and take special care to keep them clean so that mold and other contaminants do not affect the health and productivity of the chickens. Fresh, cold, sweet and sterile water at least 4-3 times a day. For chickens, everything should change.
Poultry should be vaccinated every two months from the Queen’s Farm so that if the immune system is weakened, it must be vaccinated. The vaccine is usually given in drinking water, but in case of fewer chickens it is better to vaccinate under the skin.

15 Reconditioned hens will definitely lay at least 10 eggs a day which can be sold in the market to earn a reasonable income. In the case of sale of eggs, care should be taken to deliver the eggs directly to the consumer instead of selling them to a commission agent or shopkeeper so as to increase the rate of profit.
After six months, the chickens can be sold in the market and replaced with another reconditioned unit. For the next six months, if you want, you can buy a unit of Egyptian chickens. Depending on the season, Egyptian chickens will be more suitable and if they want, they can start with reconditioned chickens, but in the summer season, proper arrangements should be made to keep them cool. Keep the derby in a room during the day to cool the fan or open the yard at night.
The chickens should be kept away from heat and their productivity should not be affected. The chickens should have fresh and clean water available at all times. If possible, change the water every hour and give green fodder in case of extreme confinement and heat so that the chickens can be protected from stress and their health is not affected.
Most people think that open space is needed for raising chickens, but if you look at the plan, it is not like that at all. Instead, you can keep enough chickens in the derby lying in a small space and get eggs from them. It is better not to keep the chickens in the derby all the time, but to keep them in a proper, bright and well-ventilated derby can save the chickens from getting sick and at the same time it does not cost labor because if the chickens are out of the derby If they are removed, it will take a long time to encircle them and lock them in the derby, and at the same time they will have to face difficulties. Besides, walking with other chickens will also increase the risk of disease.
