ICAR-Directorate of Poultry Research, Hyderabad introduced rural/ backyard chicken farming with improved chicken varieties with an aim to improve the income and living standards of SC farmers under Scheduled caste Sub-Plan (SCSP) . Under the plan, SC families of Chinchalpet village, Vikarabad district were given training on “Backyard poultry farming” at ICAR-DPR, Hyderabad and were provided with 18-20 Vanaraja birds (5-6 weeks of age), 20-25 kg feed, one feeder and one drinker for each beneficiary. The SC families were rearing the birds for the last few months. To further improve backyard poultry farming and to safe guard the birds from predatory attacks and  different climatic conditions during night time, Temporary night shelters were designed and made by ICAR-DPR.
