Annex 1 shows the international poultry periodicals.

Most of these periodicals publish academic and scholarly articles, and some publish trade information for a target group.

The formation of the network, which has technical and financial backing from FAO, was a major milestone in rural poultry development in Africa.

One of the main activities of ANRPD has been the production of a newsletter as a medium for dissemination of information and developments in rural poultry in Africa.

As shown in Table 2, FAO and other development agencies have increasingly promoted the development of rural poultry through expert consultation meetings, workshops and seminars.

In 1989 the formation of the African Network for Rural Poultry Development (ANRPD) was proposed in an international workshop on rural poultry production in Africa at Ile-Ife, Nigeria, and this proposal was endorsed in 1990 in a seminar on smallholder poultry production, in Thessaloniki, Greece (Table 2).

Similar observations on genetic improvement programmes based on the introduction of exotic genes in local populations through cockerel exchange, supply of pullets or hatching eggs have been reported in Malawi (Safalaou, 1997), the Niger (Kaiser, 1990) and the United Republic of Tanzania (Katule and Mgheni, 1990).

Fayoumi has been introduced in other tropical countries such as Ethiopia (Swan, 1996), the United Republic of Tanzania (Katule, 1989) and Bangladesh (Jensen. Currently there is a major global thrust on genetic preservation and biodiversity which is reflected in efforts on development of genome and data banks (National Research Council, 1993; Crawford and Gavora, 1993).

FIGURE 3 Rural poultry topics Genetic resources According to Horst (1988), the genetic resource base of the indigenous chickens in the tropics is rich and should form the basis for genetic improvement and diversification to produce a breed adapted to the tropics.

Horst (1988) described nine major genes of the indigenous chicken (Table 3) that can be used in genetic improvement programmes.

In the Sri Lanka studies, the village chicken feed was partitioned into household refuse, 72 percent; grass shoots, 13 percent; small metazoans, 8 percent; and paddy rice, 7 percent.

The household refuse was further partitioned into coconut residues, 30 percent; broken rice, 8 percent; and sundries (vegetable trimmings, egg shells, bread, dried fish and scarps), 36 percent.

Information on the use of the morphological marker genes given in Table 3 for genetic improvement is scanty.
