New Delhi: With around five months to go for the 14th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL), former Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has decided to start poultry farming as his new pastime during the pandemic.

Dhoni has ordered as many as 2,000 Kadaknath chickens and this one of the rare breeds in India.

According to reports by IANS, Dhoni contacted IS Tomar, who is the director of the Kadaknath Murga Research Center in Jhabua, through his friend. Afterwards, he reached Thandla farmer named Vinod Medha.

It is noted that Kadaknath chickens are fat and cholesterol-free.

Vinod has been asked by Dhoni to supply 2,000 Kadaknath in Ranchi before the deadline of December 15.

He said, “Three months ago, Dhoni’s farm managers got in touch with me through the Krishi Vikas Kendra (KVK) and MP Kadaknath mobile phone app. Five days ago, I got the order for 2000 chicks, which I’ve to deliver in Ranchi by December 15. The advance payment for the 2000 chicks has already been credited in my account by the team managing Dhoni’s farm. I’m proud to be supplying Kadaknath chicks to the farm of one of the most famous cricketers of the country,” as quoted by The New Indian Express.

Dr Chandan Kumar, the scientist incharge of the Kadaknath chicken wing of the Krishi Vigyan Kendra (Jhabua) said, “Kunal Gaurav, who manages MS Dhoni’s farm in Ranchi, got in touch with experts of Ranchi Veterinary College a few months back for getting Kadaknath chicks. Since I’m an alumnus of the same college, the experts at Ranchi Veterinary College got in touch with me.”

“Then we searched for more Kadakanth farmers and finally managed to connect a farmer Vinod Medha with MS Dhoni’s team and experts and alumni of Ranchi Veterinary College, associated with the famous cricketer,” Dr Kumar said.

“This chicken variety is believed to possess inherent medicinal properties with high protein and low cholesterol and fat content when compared to other chicken varieties,” Tomar said.

Earlier, Dhoni was seen driving a tractor in a farm and this video of him gone viral and now it is speculated that he is all set for poultry farming.
