Hello all! Well, I have ventured into the world of chickens. It is my senior year of high school and I have decided to take on 25 broilers that I will be receiving this week at one day old for live stock shows. I have received information regarding raising chicks, but here's the thing. Every student in the state of Texas gets their chicks from the same breeder and the only way to win at shows is by raising them in ideal conditions. So I am here, asking the experts, on the ideal way to raise these chicks to have the upper hand on the competitions. What food, which living areas, etc etc. sorry I am so new to this! Thanks!
