    It might help to see what is available locally. Members could suggest a number of breeds, but if you can't get them in India, it will be a little frustrating for you. Here in Kenya, some of our commercial chickens originated in India, so i do hope that you can find either standard breeds or even the commercial hybrids.

    Best wishes

    Just google chickens for sale india and you may find some breeders or hatcheries close to you. You can also check out the Breeds section here on BYC, once you know what you can buy locally. There are also threads on a number of breeds, so feel free to search for them here.

    I have golden comets, have had them since they were 8 weeks old and they started to lay when about 22 weeks old. Have 5, get 5 eggs a day and nearly every day 1 is a double yolker. Over the past 2 days have been getting 6 eggs??!!!
