Leghorn is an exotic breed of:
Leghorn is probably the best egg-laying breed to introduce to tropical Countries, if conditions are not too harsh. Eggs are produced at a lower price and the large comb and wattles, naked legs and white feathers are all factors favouring thermo-tolerance. Where a hot climate and insufficient feeding are limiting factors, Leghorn-derived breeds are more suitable and may also be utilised to improve the genetic pool of local strains.
Poultry feed has a higher level of:
Breeder hen diets should be supplemented with Vitamin K to ensure good chick health. Laying hens fed a diet deficient in vitamin k produce eggs low in the vitamin, and when the eggs are incubated, the chicks produced have low reserves and a prolonged clotting time. Vitamin A is easily destroyed in feed processing and storage. Usually, 10,000-15, 000 IU/ kg vitamin A is supplemented in broiler or broiler breeder commercial feed. High levels of vitamin A decreased egg production, size, and hatchability in laying hens.

Which is a desirable characteristic in poultry?

Which of the following is cultured for pearls?
Pearl culture which is not a very old venture is restricted to certain parts of the world only. It includes the culture of oysters in restricted areas and after attaining a particular size and treated specially with the help of scientific equipments and appliances to produce pearl.
Sometimes fish are cultured with:
Many times fish culture also known as pisciculture done in combination with rice crop.
this is because during the sowing of rice crop it needs more and more water . the land where to sown the rice crop should be too much wet . even the field is filled with water up to 1 to 1.5 feet . so , in this water we can rear the fish also cause water is enough for fish and rice too.
this water helps to. survive the new fishes in the field and when this fishes grown up than it will be transfer to a big lake or a pond .
Which of the following fish is a surface feeder?
Surface feeder takes its food from air water interface or feeds just below water surface. Catla is common fresh water fish variety and is a major surface feeder. The fresh water resources include river, canals, lakes reservoirs etc.
