Chickens Best egg laying chickens to Raise
I've read that the most economical breed is the commercial white leghorn-type hybrids. They produce white eggs and they consume lesser feed. But the problem here is that our people then to hate white eggs.

The reds or sex-linked hybrids will lay large brown eggs and they also produce meaty carcasses. Brown eggs are easier to market in Nigeria.

Pure breeds are not very good layers.
I don't know why Nigerians hate white eggs. Is it a taboo to them or what?
White eggs is acceptable in some places though.
Where can someone buy the white leghorn chicks?
