Hi all, I have so many questions I really dont know where to start but here's a few to get me going. I would like to raise chickens for both the eggs and the meat so I'm looking at the dual purpose breeds. So I was woundering: Is it possible for a BYCer to raise a self sustaining flock? If so, how many birds would I be looking at (hens/roos)? Would it be better to stick to one breed or have multiple breeds for genetic diversity? Where would be the best place to order my birds from? I've read about the minimum square foot requirement per chicken for the coop. Is there a maximum?
