We are a retired couple living in North Carolina and excited about getting Rhode Island Reds from McMurray Hatchery next week. We plan to begin the chicks in the basement of our house and then move them to a chicken tractor (that is still under construction). Most of these chicks will be raised for meat, but we will keep a few for eggs. We have never raised chickens - trying to plan for all upcoming challenges - would like for any backyard chicken suggestions. Want to feed organic food - any suggestions on how much feed we will need?
