I have a limit that my coop can fit and I will not go over that (hopefully). I just hatched 21 chicks I'm using for meat (I am keeping maybe 2 depending on coloring) and it'll feed my family so I'm happy about that.Thank you.
I think my biggest problems are losing them to the local wildlife or having them get hurt. I also have a hard time in the winter - and knowing I have to take care of them even when I don't want to go outside can be draining sometimes.
If I do get back into chickens, I've got more ideas, like how to build fort knox, better coop designs, etc. I have been tempted by chicken math, but so far, have been able to resist knowing I could easily get overwhelmed.
I'll probably live vicariously through this site and laugh at the enablers Now that I have an account, I may even join in
We have had to redo a lot due to predators but it's only helped our flock every time we do it. Predators are hard to keep up with, but eventually you'll find something that works.
