i have a 20 foot by 15 foot area in my yard how many cornish rock can i stick in there
Ummm...."stick in there"?!!!!
Well, that's 300 sq ft, so if you go with the 10 sq ft per bird in a run you could get 30 in there.
i here the cornish rock dont need alot of room because all they do is eat and poo
The big limiting factor is the coop size I would think. You would want sufficient room in the coop for them to be comfortable at night without being overcrowded.
Assuming sufficient coop space I think 50 broiler birds would be ok in the space you described, assuming you are planning to butcher them at 7 or 8 weeks.
i was figuring 75 birds with 20 being gone within 5 weeks and a nother 30 in 8 weeks and the yest at about 11weeks im building a tractor right now that is 6foot by 15' 6' by7' is coop
