    Hi All, I have got an eco-finca in Panama. My plan is to get eggs first and then get chickens for meat fed on coconut and milk. In France they have chickens (like Poulet de Bresse) that have such a wonder full texture and taste. Here in Panama I will try to get them fed on purely local produce and free range them.

    ANy help in any of these directions would be useful.

    Will coconut and milk be able to sustain their explosive growth rate? I've never known of it being fed to chickens but, know very little about meaties.

    Welcome! I think your plan sounds great! Just make sure the chickies are getting enough nutrients so they grow big and strong!
