    Hi there, [​IMG] and welcome to BYC!

    That depends on what you want to keep them for. Broilers are meat birds and are not kept as pets or for their eggs. They grow fast and you butcher them up in a couple of months. Where as layers you keep for eggs and meat, but they can live for years and lay eggs for you and at the end of their lives you can butcher them up for the diner table as well.

    Good luck in all your poultry adventures and enjoy BYC!

    Welcome to BYC![​IMG] We're glad to have you. If you're starting a business, I would go with broilers. Making money with laying hens is often harder than making money with broilers.
