    Africa - near the equator
    Hi and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us. I think I'd be more inclined to check out what breeds are available in Ghana. If it's anything like East Africa then it's either commercial birds, local road-runners and with a bit of searching, one or two sources of "so called" breeds.

    Check out the coops section (brown tab at top of page), but ensure that you factor in your temperatures up there, i.e. lots and lots of ventilation.

    Thats going to be a tough ask. Even shipping within a country can significantly reduce hatch rates - never mind the effects of being flown. Maybe if you know of someone that is going overseas, and asking them to bring some eggs back with them could work [​IMG]
