The selected farm supplied average 25.4gm,61.5gm and 113.38gm for starter(0-5wks),grower(6-17wks) and layer(18-50wks) for a day and the average body weight gain was 248.2,1171.67gm and 2145.21gm respectively for female.The average hen house egg production (24th-50th week)was 85.03%.The peak production achieved at 26th of age and the value is 90% which constant 32 weeks age .The peak production was 26-32 weeks of age (Average 90.57%).Average hatchability (24th-50th) was 84.78% which is efficient.The highest Hatching percentage was recoded at 42,43 and 44th weeks that was 90.62%,91.60% and 91.04% respectively.The management system was controlled properly by proper feed supplement,vaccination, fumigation, ventilation, bio-security and hygienic management regularly.

Veterinary Extension Services and High Prices of Medicines (Score-117.66) and lowest ranked problems was recorded as theft and accident as well as invasion of predator. Finally, some recommendations were made like as improved HYV Fodder production by NGO at road sides & fellow land, Prevention of diseases,Ensuring adequate veterinary services and health care facilities,Make available quality bucks, Awareness buildup to keep goats and kid from seasonal affect, Provide veterinary extension services and training and Supply of credit at low interest etc.
