    I love to rear chicken for commercial purpose but know nothing about it. I decided to start somewhere, got 10 pieces of 4weeks old cockerel 3 months ago, they are doing fine. later got 20 day-old broilers 3 weeks ago. 8 died. the rest look good.
    I'm in Nigeria. my aim is to learn poultry farming practically before going commercial. I don't think I have anything to contribute for now but I hope I will soon.
    I do hope to have a nice time in this forum. thank you all.

    Hi and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us. I seem to recall another member joining us from Nigeria late last year. Sadly, they too had problems with their broilers. I hope that the rest of yours make and you manage to make some profit. I think starting small and gaining experience before investing huge amounts is a very sensible way to approach things.

    Best wishes

    thank you all. I'm happy to be here. I hope to gain valuable experience with with the few birds with me after which I hope to have more broilers and layers. say 100 each. I believe we will raise them together.

    G’Day from down under Adeniji [​IMG] Welcome!

    Best wishes with your plans, I do hope you are successful.

    I also hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
