I have never had a chicken in my life until about two weeks ago when we got 10 layers. We have cows and horses and have had them our whole life but have never has chickens until now. As I said we now have 10 layers about 2 weeks old but I have been thinking about getting some meat birds also. Property space is not an issue as we live on a farm. I really just know nothing about meat birds and am wanting advice on processing, raising, and any general knowledge. Do you keep a few birds and let them lay for the next year or do you just buy a whole new flock the next year? How difficult is it to process them? Should I jump in with the meat birds also or wait and see how the layers go first? Any advice is appreciated.
