  1. Hi,
    I came across ur project on Chicken Health 4 Developement in Ethiopia and i’m very interested on the progress u made towards reducing the impact of infectious diseases on local poultry. In fact, we are conducting a similar work in Dakoro (Niger Republic) by investigating the major diseases that hindered local poultry development in that area.
    Thanks for making sign and keep it up.
