    I am thinking about doing broilers for the first time. Someone gave us a bottomless wire cage that would be perfect. It's approximately 4X7 ft. How many broilers could i have in there, and does anyone know for broilers sqft/bird?
    Thanks

    It depends how often you want to move your tractor. [​IMG]

    I'd say 14 max.
