    Hello, new here. I just purchased a new house on 40 acres and would like to raise meat chickens in 2018. That gives me all of this year to build a coop and figure out what kind of birds to raise. I figured this was a good place to start.

    Hi and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us and congrats on your new move. I sometimes raise a few meat birds for the family but on a micro-scale. I guess the best forum for you would be the Meat birds etc forum. I'm sure that members could give advice re: breeds and housing designs.

    Best wishes

    Congrats on taking the time to think about how you want to go about raising meat birds and to build what you need to.

    Best wishes for success!

    Best wishes on your new venture!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
