Breeds And Varieties Of Chicken by farmsupport: 9:06pm On Jul 22, 2020
All breeds and varieties of chicken are due to natural and artificial selection.
Commercially, they may be referred to as
 Egg type- Those that were bred for egg production
 Broilers- Those that have been bred for growth and meat production
 Dual purpose- Those bred to lay some eggs and provide some meat.

Breeding of chicken for improved meat and eggs production has been relatively recent.
Chicken breeders were able to select for improved traits such as
 Egg production, size, shape, colour and quantity
 Body weight and rate of growth
 Feed efficiency, high livability and disease resistant

You can get all this breed of birds on an Agricecommerce platform like daydone.com.ng for your rearing and consumption

There is now a platform created to support and grow agricultural and food related brands. It is called The Chicken Farm. It is a site that connects buyers and sellers of chicken products. Products including: Poultry, Fast Food, Equipment, Manure, Feed etc can all be sold and bought on the site as long as they relate to chicken. Visit www.thechickenfarm.com.ng

It's for those in Nigeria.
