Development of Nepal's poultry production could be divided into three distinct periods since its commencement in 1965. The period from 1965 to 1980 was primarily engaged in subsistence production,from 1981 to 2002 the period of commercialization and onwards the period of competitiveness which is continuing to date. After six years of government efforts to commercialize poultry farming by establishing a central hatchery, a US funded project produced 1700 New Hampshire day old chicks in 1961, Ratna feed, Kantipur poultry farms and Joshi poultry farms imported hybrid chickens from India and distributed them to poultry farmers in 1964. Achievements were made in producing vaccines against Newcastle disease and fowl pox in the then Central Animal Health Research Laboratory in Tripureshor and in expanding hatcheries in Khumaltar, Pokhara, Tarahara and Nepalgunj.
Besides that, there were Government initiated different programs to reduce poverty through distributing day old chicks at a subsidized rate to the targeted households in different districts with special focus on the Far Western Development Region.
