I am moving to a new property in Hudson Valley, NY and have 1.5 acres. I've always dreamed of raising chickens and am hoping that now I'll be able to. Some of the property is for planting/landscaping so that will be off limits to the chickens, leaving me with approximately 1/2 acre. Is this enough to raise 6 happy, healthy chickens? What kind of 'damage' should I expect on the land that I do allow them access to? Can it still be used for other purposes or should it be solely for the chickens? Please advise! Thank you.
