Although, there are different poultry production systems in Ethiopia, the backyard productionsystem is the predominant oneandit is characterized bysmall flocksize, poor management, and not effective in terms of production and productivity. The demand of thecountry for egg production has not been achieved yet. Thus, there is a need to introduce an environmentally friendly, productive and sustainable production system that can better profit the producers and satisfy egg demand of the country. To this end, a collaborative project was initiated between the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (EMBRAPA) and EIAR, to introduce some of the selected methods of production, breed technologies and management practices of Brazil on improved chicken production systems particularly the free range layers production. Brazil is one of the main poultry producers and exporters in the world. The project will also generate national data on opportunities and challenges to introduce theproposed production systeminthecounty.
