I was just wondering if there was anyone that has done free range farming with Cornish Crosses. What are the challenges. Surely you could not put baby chicks outside in the cold and expect them to survive or could you. I have an idea of doing some freerange cornish Cross farming but I am not sure of how to start. I have looked on the Internet and I have this picture of a cheap DIY coop for my chickens. PVC Electrical conduit for the skeleton, wire mesh for the sides / elevation and PVC cloth for the roof. What else can I use for the roof.
