    you need to really research the meat bird threads in that section-everything you could possibly ask is answered there:) [​IMG]

    also check with your state's department of health. they can give you some really applicable info and that way you'll know where you stand (legally speaking) right from the get-go.

    takin' over for me huh?

    she's right and so is eko check with your state ag department for the reg's and then get on here and read and read and read. You're going to find more valuable info on here from beginners posting experiences to experts offering advice - the big difference from here & the books you find at the feed store with all the pretty pictures is that the people on here actually have chickens.
    If you want to see a great web site check out Jeff's at Brunty Farms, I think it is one of the nicest 7 most comprehensive ones I have seen.

    I also have a question to anyone who has informartion on the following.

    I been researching to find a chicken that has the top quaility meat that you just cant beat. Im a foody and want to raise the best tasting chickens BUTTTT i also want those chickens to be able to breed to type. And iv found so many amazing meat birds like the REDBRO free ranger but they cant reproduce to the same type. So dose anybody out there know which bird thats best for me.Iv had egg layers and i rely just want " a bird thats known for top quality meat(good flavor/moist) BUT also i can reproduce with just a rooster and a hen and good old mother nature to breed together and get that same top quality meat in the chicks." Please help me out. I dont care if its a common breed or if its quite new i just want to know which breed that best fits my needs.
    Thanks zachary brown from florida
