I have read books from the library and searched online but I can't find a resource on how to grow meat and eggs from the same flock and have the chickens reproduce to replenish the flock for the next year. I am interested in learning how to raise my chickens to supply my family with eggs and meat all year until Spring when they have babies. I live in Arizona and I am looking at ordering 18 Buff Orpington's hens and 2 roosters. I was going to get all the same breed to avoid cross breading. Chickens can't survive too many summers here and I would like to harvest the ones that don't go broody or more then two years old plus roosters. Can anyone recommend a resource on how to successfully do that?
