The experimental parameters studied were final Body weight, cumulative feed consumption, FCR, mortality percentage, carcass characteristics and economics of intensive rearing systems. All the birds from three breeds showed highly significant (p<0.01) differences in studied parameters except mortality. The performance of Giriraja bird was superior than Kadaknath and Black Australorp seems to be most economical under Intensive system of housing.
