Bhopal: Mahendra Singh Dhoni is set to farm famous black 'Kadaknath' chickens at his organic poultry unit. The former Indian cricket team captain has ordered for 2,000 chicks. The Kadaknath breed, originally from Jhabua district of Madhya Pradesh, will reach his Ranchi farm soon.

Dhoni's order will be delivered by December 15 from tribal farmer Vinod Menda.
