I have recently closed on a 15acre house/land in Shelby County, Alabama.
My intention is to raise chickens as a source of meat. I do not eat a large number of eggs as of yet.
This may indeed change, as I have many relatives in the area. I am hoping that having lots of free eggs will sway their minds, but that will be secondary to meat chickens.
I appreciate all the information that this site and its members have provided me during this planning phase.
