I have been doing a lot of reading on this forum and see that many people raise their meat birds in tractors. What I have also seen is that they seem to have very lush green grass that they move the tractor over every day. I live in New Mexico where there isn't much lush green grass so I was wondering what people without the lushness do with their meaties. My layers free range around my 2.5 acres and seem to be keeping themselves quite busy but I don't know how much food they are actually getting from the free ranging. They also have food available to them in their run. I would like to have the meaties outside, not in a smallish run for their "happiness" and also for mine. I hear their smell can get quite overwhelming if they stay in one spot for too long. How do you other SW meatie keepers manage your meaties. Are they in a tractor, large run, or what?
