Hi all. I have 8 RSL and have been enjoying them for nearly a year. I have three acres in southern Alberta and am thinking I'd like to try my own broilers for the fall. Going price around here for natural birds is $3.50 lbs (yikes). So I figured I'd try to raise my own from chicks, something I've never done before as I purchased my RSL at 19 weeks. I've got some questions if you don't mind ... 1. Is this going to be more difficult then I think? I figure I've already got the coop, run and extended outdoor living area so why not add more chickens and save some money all the while striving for self sustainability. 2. Would a tractor work best for keeping the chicks safe from the mature RSL? Any ideas on how to best utilize my existing set up until the chicks are large enough to integrate? 3. The coop is only 5x5 but in the spring, summer and fall they are hardly in there and I can always add roosts vertically to create more real estate. 4. Am I correct in thinking that a broiler can be raised from spring and butchered in the fall (appx. 90 days)? 5. Greedily thinking a turkey or two as well. High hopes??? Thanks for your time and advice in advance.
