Hi all, I am planning on raising 40 broilers this year. I live in Southern New Hampshire (shortened growing season). I have a 2800 SF garden and about an acre of lawn that I can move the tractors over. I have a problem in that I have read Chicken Tractor and believe in the system, but I don't know how to execute for my climate. The book is long on selling the idea and short on the nitty gritty. I was hoping the good people here could answer my very newbie questions. 1) When can I start with the chickens? Can I get them outside in April, working the garden area until June and still have time to plant some things? or 2) Do I divide my garden area in half and "chicken tractor" half this year, spread a cover crop and garden on the other half, then switch it for next year? or 3) Do I plant my garden in the spring and then put the chickens on it at the end of the growing season, covering and mulching for the winter, and harvest them around October/November? Help! How has it worked for you? Also, how many SF in the tractor for healthy raising of the 40 broilers? More than 80 SF, I am guessing. I will be using the colored rangers if that makes a difference. I want to get my chicken order in, but I have no idea if they should be delivered in March or in August or ???? I don't know personally of anyone local who raises broilers with this method. Thanks!
