Abstract: Now the days Fayoumi and Sonali breeds are commonly reared in scavenging rearing system in Bangladesh. The aim of the present study was to determine the liveability of Fayoumi and Sonali chicks. One observational cross-sectional study was done on the Fayoumi and Sonali chicks at Chittagong and Noakhali district from October 2005 to July 2006. A total of 48 farmers (24 from each Upazila) were selected randomly, who reared chicks under scavenging condition and as well as had broody hens. Twelve eggs of each breed were supplied to each farmer. The chicks were hatched out by the farmers managed broody hens. Then the chicks were reared under scavenging system. The overall liveability of Fayoumi chick after 8-week was 58.2% and the difference between Chittagong and Noakhali sites was negligible, which did not vary at all (χ2 = 0, df = 1, p > 0.05). Whereas the overall liveability of Sonali chick was 49.4% and there was small variation between two sites, but it did not differ significantly (χ2 = 0.316, df = 1, p > 0.05). On the other hand, the liveability of Fayoumi chick was higher than that of Sonali, though it did not vary significantly (χ2 = 1.317, df = 1, p > 0.05). After 12 weeks the liveability of Fayoumi was 42.3% and Sonali 31.2% that varied between two breeds, but not significantly (χ2 = 3.43, df = 1, p > 0.05). The liveability of Fayoumi chicks was higher Chittagong (43.8%), but that was not significantly different from in Noakhali (40.9%) (χ2 = 0.04, df = 1, p > 0.05). Liveability for Sonali did not differ significantly between two sites (χ2 = 11, df = 1, p > 0.06). Liveability of Fayoumi chicks was better than Sonali under scavenging rearing condition.
