I couldn't decide if I should post this here or in the coops forum-I seriously went back and forth for 15 minutes Anyway, I have a friend who may go in on some meat birds with me next year. I really want colored bros, but the short time that cornish x have to grow appeals to her (and me really). If it were my house though, I'd have red bros or something similar. How much space does a cornish x need? What could we use for a inexpensive temporary shelter/safe zone in her pasture? What would a free ranger need? Could they be out during the day and locked up at night, or will that be too much movement and make for tough meat? It's going to be 3-5 years before I can move and have my own meat birds, so I really want to try to make this arrangement work in the mean time.
