    I would like to know if you have to be licensed and whatever hoops to go through to become a commercial gamefowl farm breeder. Any info would be grand...

    i would start with making sure you have consistently good birds first and foremost. My guess is it's not an overnight endeavor. Anybody can raise and sell gamefowl. Producing consistent excellent gamefowl is something entirely different.

    In my opinion the less people know the better. Different strokes for different folks though.
