I am looking for some information (without buying a book) about the stock density of day range chickens; IE 500 per ace? Also, what is the allotted amount of time they are allowed on that area, and how long does the used area need to rest? I am looking to raise about 2500 freedom rangers for direct marketing next year and am trying to evaluate if I have enough acreage. I have about 7 acres and the ability to raise the chickens year round. So with an 11 week turn around and only 7 of those weeks on range, I would only have about 650-700 on range at any given time.
