How much space is needed for meat birds??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I am thinking of getting some meat birds and would like to know the recommended space for them.  I have layers and know that there are differences.  They will not be free ranged if this makes a difference.  Any help would be appreciated.

Here is to natural being normal!!   My rainbow egg basket is complete!!!

 

2 Easter Eggers, 2 Columbian Rock, 1 Gold Laced Wyandotte X, 7 Red Layer, 1 Birchen Marans, 1 Rhodes, 2 Blk Orphs, 1 Buff Laced Polish, 41 mixed breed chicks, 1 dog, 2 cats, twin boys, and the best husband.

While mine are still in a brooder, I made a tractor that is 1 1/2 sf and I will have a storm fence up that they can range in during the day that will be about 10 sf/bird.
