Would like a breed that will brood it's own young, and a good size egg (thinking lg). If we have an excess, I would like to be able to sell them off fairly easily and dress out to be a fair sized carcass for meat. I plan to use lacto-fermented feed, so that will lower my costs there, but would like to work towards being as self sufficient as possible. We are looking for a bird that will be pretty good at foraging. Will start out with a nice sized run and expand to free ranging (am thinking maybe dedicating a whole acre to 'em, total run and range). Any thoughts or suggestions will be Greatly appreciated.
