    So I had a pair of 5 gallon buckets laying around so I made use of them. A 5 gallon waterer and a 5 gallon feeder for my chicks.

    Got close to 200 in all once I receive an order on the 1st. 13 different breeds plus my meat bird crosses experiment.

    Any advice on talking to people about purchasing meat birds from us / I always here that price seems high compared to the grocery store

    IMO, there is no way to compete with the grocery store, unless you have a market group of organic minded folks.
