From each district 60 back yard poultry farmers were selected randomly which constituted total sample size of 120. The ex-post facto research design was employed and appropriate statistical tools were applied to analyse the data. The study revealed that, majority (40.00%) of backyard poultry famers belonged to high decision making category. While, 58.33 per cent of the backyard poultry farmers belonged to medium level of participation in poultry farming activities.
