Hi all, I'm considering possibly raising meat chickens in the future, and my husband thinks I am insane. So of course I have come to you all for a sanity check. That may be questionable judgement on my part given that you are also crazy chicken people, haha, but at least you have experience!
Is it reasonably feasible to raise chickens for meat in an urban backyard? I have a 9,000 sq ft lot in the city. I am allowed to have chickens, but not roosters. It seems like it could be feasible to either raise cornish x in an outbuilding, or raise a few large-breed cockerels and butcher them when they start crowing? I am thinking maybe half a dozen or so, max, and leaning toward the meaties as the experiment will be faster.
Is this a truly terrible idea or am I just normal chicken crazy?? :)
