    Hello I'm new........ I am a Nigerian and I've always had this dream to become the largest supplier of eggs in the eastern region, it's my first time so I want to start with 500 birds then increase to 3000 after 1 year. Which is the best breed to hatch here because most of the birds you guys are talking about there are not even here!!![​IMG][​IMG]
