A study was carried out to study the growth & performance of Dahlem Red x Kadak nath crosses in both intensive & extensive system of poultry rearing during 2002-2003 under a TAR project at a high altitude temperate climate in Himalaya hills. The weekly body weight in intensive system of rearing were 100.2± 0.96, 160.0± 1.90, 239.4± 2.10, 408.6± 2.80, 732.0± 3.63, 895.2± 4.20 and 996.2± 5.50 gm respectively corresponding body weight of 94.40± 0.98, 151.8± 1.96, 230.2± 2.34, 397.0± 2.92, 710.0± 3.82, 846.2± 4.60 and 931.2 ± 5.60 gm at in II nd, III rd ,IV th , V th, VI th , VII th, & VIII th weeks of age in extensive system of rearing at farmers field in adopted villages.
