I think i will probably get 75 birds, in 25 increments (Hoovers has a 25 bird minimum) I have so far ordered 13 red ranger and 12 rainbow dixie birds to be delivered the 15th. I already have a good brooding room set up in my barn but i still need to build a tractor and rebuild my broiler pen.
We have a old lowboy on the farm that is no longer in use that i was told i could have for the tractor.
We also have some old hog farrowing crates, lots of old tin for roofing and plenty of old wood. Ideally i would like to build everything with stuff we already have on the farm (FIL is a bit of a hoarder it would be great and inexpensive if i could use some of it up)
This will be many more chickens then i have ever raised and i have little experience building. Any tips or insight will be appreciated.
