Any tips from those with large flocks?... Our chickens are not free range. We raise them in a large chicken house.
Are there any good resources on the Internet for managing large flocks?
I am trying to get a handle on feed and water for so many birds. We buy feed from a lady who provides chicken feed. I live in Africa. I'm not sure of even the type of bird I have.
They have two main types of bird here...
The one that grows in 1.5 to 2.5 months they call (big leg or big foot) and the one that takes forever and ever to grow that they call small legs or small foot... which takes 5 or 6 months. Unfortunately, I ended up with the slow boat chickens. :(
We have trough feeders and the traditional waters with the red or yellow round tray at the bottom but we want to conserve space on a budget. The waterers seem to take up too much space and we need more.
Any suggestions for further education would be great.
