    Hello every one I am new to BYC (hence my posting here) [​IMG] I have 13 hens and a duck who are all braving their first Winter alive and in Michigan. I had a rooster but he fell victim to the neighbor's mean Pit Bull [​IMG] I am getting into the Meat bird side of things this year so any suggestions you have about meat birds let me know!

    feel free to email me [​IMG]

    [​IMG] and [​IMG] from Ohio. So glad you joined. Raising your own meat birds are truely wonderful tasting. My advice is don't raise them with your other birds. They grow fast and smell a lot worse but it only takes about 8 wks and you are done. Good luck, they are worth it. [​IMG]
