Folk chickens – known as the Muang chicken – are very popular to raise in the highlands. Local people like to consume chicken which is firm, tasty, reasonably priced, and easy to raise either in a cage or in the backyard. Raisers need to be careful during the hatching period for the newborn chicks up to 3 months, as they are more vulnerable during this time. From these chickens, households will have nutrients and protein from chicken meat and eggs all year round. Folk chickens can be raised as a supplementary career that helps to have extra income for the family.
