I'm researching raising my own birds for meat. Before I jump into this, I need to know if it's feasible for me. I don't have the ability to process them myself. Are there processing facilities around Northeast GA? What all is involved in raising them? My goal would be to give them a wonderful life with plenty of space, possibly free-ranging them (after quarantine) if I can do it without putting my laying hens in danger. If free-ranging isn't possible, I would need to build them a large tractor coop or supplement their feed with fodder so they have lots of nutrition.
