Gashaw Alamirew


The study was conducted at Debre Tabor town using Bovan white chicken with a body weight of 34 gram. The objectives of the study were to assess growth performance and environmental adaptability of Bovan white chicken. Data for 66 days were collected using semi structure interview and then analyzed by using descriptive statistics. The average daily body weight gain of chickens was 5.24gram and mortality rate of chickens in the first two weeks was very high, which is about 540 chickens or 30% were died. This was probably associated due to management practice especially, due to lack of brooding system and multi vitamin intake. Then after one month’s mortality rate was sharply decreases. Based on the result obtained it is recommended that management practice should be improved to decrease mortality rate especially in the early age of growth and to improve growth performance of chicken.
