LOL, I had the similar thought when I looked at the finished feeder. As to just raising chickens, I somehow doubt you'd be able to stop there once you start. They can take a country boy out of a country, but they can never take a country out of a country boy. Been there done that.

Where do you get you loose minerals from for your goats, I have been to Reimers today at SL for feed, but they tell me they don't stock the minerals.

Gloria Verka in Corozal does goats. Makes good cheese
She would know. Try facebook for contact
Personally I would raise Dorper or Katahdin sheep in that God forsaken climate

The average temp in Belize is 85F with a relative humidity of 80%. This gives us a humidex of 108F. This is not a climate, its a setting for beef stir fry.
The remedy for this is AC but beings as how Belize has the most expensive electricity in the region that can be problematic. The cooling effect of the easterly ocean breeze is marginal due to air saturation. Here we see how a typical Belize afternoon is spent...
