Rural Backyard Poultry (Chicken)
Chicken Rearing To Improve Protein Diet In The Rural Community:
Rearing chickens (anak ayam) allows our farming families to have more variety of protein in the form of eggs and meat (telur / daging). The rural community severely lacks protein in their diets, which affects farmers’ health and children’s development.
One egg contains 7g of high-quality protein, along with other essential minerals and vitamins for good health, while chickens are even richer in these. Farmers can easily rear chickens in nearby barns for self-consumption, with the extra eggs and meat sold within their community. The cost of eating proper protein is lowered and is easily accessible anytime. This improves their diets / protein intake, and also increases their household income and enables food security in the long-term.
