Limited food supply and huge demand have necessitated the researchers to find out the new food sources. In this context, non-traditional small poultry species can play a major role in it amongst muscle foods. By rearing in a proper manner, slaughtering at proper age, good quality meat can be produced. Moreover, economic status and livelihood standards can be raised. However, many challenges act as a barrier to their production and harvesting which need to be taken care off. Therefore, the non-traditional poultry species may get focus as a supplementary muscle food source in a view to food sustainability.
