    I don't think "desi" refers to one particular breed, though it might be one breed in your area. Chances are good that there is no English language equivalent, but post a picture, if you can. What I found when I looked it up is that it roughly translates as "native" when referring to chickens and vegetables. It's possible you have a breed unique to your area.

    Can you post a picture?

    From what I have read it means a chick injected with a harmless chemical in its 1st few weeks of life to change its colour it doesnt seem to have a specific breed but all seem very :beautiful :D

    Since you are in Pakistan, can you contact the Poultry Research Institute? They seem to be sponsoring the research on them.
