Hi, I am recently knew to the vpchicken business. I live on a large dairy and am looking for a small investment. Over the su mmer I will be raising about 20 egg layers and 100 meat chickens (over three groups). Regarding the egg layer house, is there a certain dimension that works well, I wanna recycle rain water, and have the house on skids. Anyone have chicken coop idea? I want the chicken to have a run, but I also want to know how long it takes to get eggs, and how big the size of the laying area should be for ideally the most production. For the meat chickens I understand the coop portion, I need to know more off getting the birds started how long they should be inside, how much protein they should be getting at each stage? How long they should be in the brooder and when can I put them out on the pasture. I live in the northeast usa and plan on getting my first chickens the middle of April?
