The former Indian captain MS Dhoni loves to utilize his time by doing organic farming. Dhoni’s last international outing was against New Zealand in July 2019 during the semi-final of the 2019 World Cup and since then many pictures have gone viral on social media where the veteran cricketer can be seen indulging in organic farming in 43 acres of land at his farm. He is also actively involved in dairy farming, duck farming, and poultry farming.
Dhoni now seems to be impressed with Kadaknath, a unique chicken breed that is black in colour and is found in the tribal-dominated Jhabua district of MP’s Bheelanchal region. The Kadaknath chicken meat has a GI tag and is recognised for its delicious taste along with its medicinal health benefits.
It is learned that MS has ordered as many as 2000 Kadaknath chicks from a poultry farmer in Jhabua district of Madhya Pradesh for his farm. Vinod Medha, a farmer from Thandla block of Jhabua district has the responsibility of delivering all the 2000 chicks to the former captain before December 15, 2020.

Speaking about this opportunity of serving the legendary player, Vinod said as quoted by Indian Express, “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.”
The scientist-in-charge of the Kadaknath chicken wing of the Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK-Jhabua), Dr. Chandan Kumar also confirmed this news saying that Dhoni’s team who is responsible for handling his farms got in touch with Veterinary College in Ranchi for getting Kadaknath chicks and from thereon they contacted him.
“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,” Dr. Chandan Kumar stated.
