I'm just getting into quail breeding and I'm considering getting into chickens. I'm in a suburban area so I doubt roosters would work at all for us. I'd like to raise chickens for meat and their eggs. Does anyone have any suggestions for doing this when you have limited space and can't have roosters d/t neighbors? What is a reliable breed for meat and eggs? What breeds are calm and not mean? At what age should the hens be culled and should I have a different meat bird than egg bird?
Thank you in advance,
