Hello!!! My wife and I just bought our first home, we just got married in July 2016. We have horses already and my in laws have 5 chickens that we have raised with them. Our farm we bought has a 24x24 barn with 3 stalls set up for chickens already. We are thinking about getting a flock of black ausrolorps for layers, about 24, and I'm going to take our many extra eggs to work and sell them. I also want to do some meat chickens but my wife does not. I have read alot about using a Cornish x for the meat chickens but I have also read alot about the ausrolorps being a good meat chicken as well, they just take longer to reach butcher age. Our coop all open up into our 13 acres or pasture and we plan on letting them run free through the day. Does this all seem like a good idea? It is for hobby as well as utility. I plan on keeping a few roosters so I can manage my flock. That is also why I was thinking about just having all ausrolorps. What say you all???
