Hi all! I want to get some meat birds this spring, but I was told the classic meat birds (Broilers???) need to be kept with very little room to move and get so fat that they can barely walk from one side of their little enclosure to the other. Having fallen in love with my egg birds, I can't imagine raising chickens to be like that. Is there any other way to do it? I was told that if I tried to eat one of my free range birds they would be too tough. Any suggestions as to how to raise my meat birds (and I do love to eat chicken!!) without breaking my heart??? Thanks!!!
