    I have a couple questions..

    Where do you buy them, from a hatchery (which one) or a local store (Rural king, feed mill, TSC ect.) ?

    Will they ever be able to fly over a 4 foot fence ?

    How much does it cost you per pound to raise them ?

    Thanks!

    1 - either one, the retail store is sourcing them from the hatchery anyway - there are pros/cons to both and it's just a matter of deciding for yourself which you want to do
    2 - NO!
    3 - that would depend on what kind of feed you choose to use as the per pound price of the specific brand is going to be the primary factor in that.
