Any info,advice,ideas would b greatly appreciated
Thanks, my head spinning with all the ifoMy 2 suggestions would be for automatic watering systems (a float valve feeding a bucket with horizontal watering nipples) and automatic feeding system (pvc elbows in a giant plastic tote). Makes life much easier to not have to worry about feed and water every day.
Also, I suggest heritage breed dual-purpose chickens, that way you're keeping the pure breeds alive and also getting a ton of eggs each year. And leaves you with options should you want to do more than just eggs in the future.
You can also look into free-ranging/foraging and fermented feed, both have their benefits and downsides. If you are allowed to, have a rooster also, but put a no-crow collar on it.
And have fun!!
