Background: The Poro region, known for its traditional Senoufo initiation practices, plays an important role in mediating local culture and modernity in Korhogo, its capital city. The rapid population growth of Korhogo, predominantly composed of the Senoufo people, has led to increased demand for African chickens not only for food, but also to preserve tradition. These chickens are sold at a specialized market known as the "chicken market." Objective: This research aims to understand how the marketing of African chickens is organized in Korhogo to meet the food, economic, and social needs of the population. Methods: This study surveyed 45 individuals, including 30 chicken traders, 10 pluckers, and 5 others involved in the chicken trade. It focuses on the economic aspects of marketing African chickens, including costs, participants, market flows, and related activities. Results: Results show that the marketing of African chickens in Korhogo is an informal system involving different actors, and consumption is influenced by traditional ceremonies, festivities, and mystical practices. The sale of poultry generates significant income for some households, but the value chain in the sector is incomplete due to the presence of other activities such as plucking and sale of feed. The study suggests that coordinating chicken marketing systems, based on the theory of contracts, could serve as a socio-economic development strategy and a tool for poverty reduction in Côte d'Ivoire.
Key words: value chain, contract, bicycle chicken, Poro region.
