Hi, I never thought I would do meaties, but now think I'm going to try. I want to have my whole process in place before I start. I have come up with a few questions and can't find the answers through searching here. Can you help? 1. I only have freezer room for a few, no more than 20 or so. What size tractor should I use for this many birds? Something small, like 4x8 or so? I plan to either use a pallet I have or PVC, form the frame, and wrap it with hardware cloth. Do I have to wrap the bottom too? I plan to make a covered portion with plywood on one side for their sleeping time. 2. I think I'll let them grow to 8 weeks or so. I don't have a large yard, and my children play in the grassy area, so I wanted to take them to my relative's house to live. Their house is about 5 minutes from me, so I can go over a couple of times a day. The problem is, no one lives in the house. If I fully enclose the tractor in hardware wire, do you think they will be protected from predators okay? They won't have any trouble foraging for grass through it, will they? 3. I don't have the confidence, or time, (3 small kids), to process them myself. How should I find someone to do this? Craigslist? Do deer processors usually process chickens too? That's most of my big ones. Thanks in advance!
