    Always wanted chickens. I been growing and selling broilers for 3 months now I'm looking to build myself a flock of free range layers. I'm keen to learn so any help would be appreciated?

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Sounds like your doing well with your broiler venture there. Good luck with your layer flock in the future. You might like to chat with others from SA about how they get in with this. I'm sure if you have a look here ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you there are threads for SA.

    Hope it all goes to plan and enjoy BYC :frow

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. Or you could just put "South African thread," in the search box and it will pop up.
