‘Karimkozhi’ sale turns out to be a hit

April 06, 2016 12:00 am | Updated 05:45 am IST - KOCHI:

Scientists at the Indian Council of Agricultural Research-Krishi Vigyan Kendra Ernakulam, attached to the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute, were overwhelmed by the response to a programme on Tuesday for sale of Kadaknath fowls (karimkozhi) as part of a campaign to promote safe-to-eat eggs and meat in households.

A scientist attached to the KVK said that the Vigyan Kendra had sold 800 birds on Tuesday.

The demand was unexpectedly high and KVK would make the event a monthly affair from now on, he said.

The birds were obtained from the Central Poultry Development Organisation (CPDO), Mumbai, and reared for two months at the KVK facility here.
