Red jungle fowl (RJF) is a biological resource that lives in the wild and has been domesticated by the community. Crosses between RJF and local chickens have occurred and produced offspring. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the reproductive ability of RJF offspring rearing by the community. The study was conducted in Seluma Regency, Bengkulu Province, Indonesia. Respondents were determined by the snowball sampling method, and 50 people were obtained. Data was collected by means of interviews, filling out questionnaires, and observation. The data collected were chicken rearing techniques, egg and chick production, and population. The results showed that the population of RJF offspring was 337 consisting of 85 roosters, 67 hens, 63 chicks, and 122 young chickens. The chicken rearing technique is carried out in 3 ways, namely reared in cages during the day and night, chickens are released during the day and night, chickens are housed at night and released during the day. The average egg production was 10.07±2.3 eggs/hen/period, a minimum of 5 eggs and a maximum of 15 eggs, the number of eggs hatched was 8.6±1.83 eggs/hen/period, and the eggs hatched were 6.17±1.6 eggs/hen/period (72.78%). Chicks production was 6.17 chicks/hen/period (61.26% of total egg production). Based on the research, it can be concluded that the offspring of RJF are local chickens that genetically have good reproductive abilities and poor maintenance management causes slow population growth.
