Dhoni To Farm 2,000 Black 'Kadaknath' Chicks
MS Dhoni is set to farm famous black 'Kadaknath' chickens at his organic poultry unit because the former Indian cricket team captain has ordered 2,000 chicks. The Kadaknath breed originally from the Jhabua district of Madhya Pradesh will reach his Ranchi farm soon.
Dhoni's order will be delivered by December 15 from tribal farmer Vinod Menda.
I.S. Tomar, director of the Kadaknath Murga Research Center in Jhabua, told reporters that Dhoni had initially contacted him through his friends but as he was not in a position to deliver, the former India captain was asked to contact the Thandla farmer.
The Kadaknath chicken meat has a GI tag and is recognized for its delicious taste with black blood and black flesh. It is fat- and cholesterol-free.
