Summary The results of the Telefood finance will be the establishment of production units with local chickens. The local chicken breed (Oso Fowru) is selected because it can adapt perfectly to the local climatological-, feeding- and management circumstances and practices. The domestic chicken has a natural resistance to most infectious diseases and is also hardened against the most extreme weather conditions. Furthermore, they are able to hatch their own eggs. The project will be implemented over a period of 12 months with interested clans.
