    Hello there chicken lover's.

    I have been doing research about a good starter poultry recipe for broilers.
    Now I have researched on a number of sites that have a few recipes.

    Where I live (Kenya) we have the poorest feed quality at extreme prices, but this poor feed quality we still manage to turnaround 1.2kg broilers in 4-5 weeks.
    Here a bag of food (70KG) is around 4,000 kenyan shillings ($40).
    I believe I have a good recipe but does anyone have another recipe or something to add?
