My DH came home from a meeting at church yesterday and informed me he volunteered to raise 300 broilers for a church fundraiser. Oh my. He did get an earful about not asking me first!!! Last year was our first experience with meat birds, we raised 50 CRX in tractors in the backyard and LOVED it. Planned on doing 75 this year for ourselves. But we don't have experience raising that many! Fortunately I think we have a good set-up for raising that many. We have a 500 sq ft shed that used to house several hundred leghorn layers & a good amount of yard we can fence off for them to free range during the day. I'm more worried about the amount of work this will be! We've ordered the Featherman kit (scalder & the plucker & the cones) so that will help, and should have plenty of help processing- lots of people around here have raised chickens. We're planning on spreading out the work over several weekends & asking other church members to donate deep freezer storage room for the birds. Any other advice from those with experience raising many broilers at a time? I'm really nervous that we'll do something wrong! UPDATE 3/29: DH had another meeting regarding the fundraiser. The concern was raised regarding selling non- USDA inspected meat. Therefore, we've decided to donate chickens from the grocery store. I appreciate SO very much all the wonderful advice and encouragement I've received here! The great news is, now I have a free building so I ordered my Bourbon Red turkeys I've been wanting!
