I would like folks opinion if trying to raise meat birds in the city is a bad idea. We are in suburbia and have a handful of layers. DH is itching to get a handful of Cornish X just to try it out and see if home raised tastes any better than a fryer from the grocery store. The only logical place we would have to place them is a pen area under the kids' old fort which we used in the past for a broody and her babies. Area worked out fine for that purpose but I think using it for meat birds would be a disaster. It is difficult to clean, and from what I've read about these pooping machines, it would need to be cleaned daily at the very least. DH thinks I'm being a negative naysayer. Who is the sane one here?
