Poultry SOS in Africa

Asked October 5, 2014, 3:34 AM EDT

How can I get this new broiler breed in Nigeria?.....(The modern broiler industry has developed a hybrid that is unlike any other breed. The initial breeds used in modern broiler hybrids were Cornish and Plymouth Rocks. Today’s broiler can achieve a 5-pound market weight in five weeks)..... My parents are poultry farmers and it takes them over three months to raise broilers to market size and its the same for all other poultry farmers in Nigeria, I want to know how I can improve on that or how I can get this new breed that can reach market size in 5 weeks. Thanks.
