Increasing the native chicken market in support of smallholder farmers in Mozambique and Uganda.
Genetic analyses are underway to understand the distinct native chicken ecotypes in each country. Cross-breeding the most popular (farmer-voted) of these is also underway to hopefully improve their productive capability, whilst retaining resilient traits for their environments (tolerance to heat, feed scarcity and disease resistance). We look forward to continued work with our partners in 2021 to achieve the key outcomes.
