I want to raise some meat birds and layers using as much organic and naturals means as possible. I found a recipe called Ronda's feed: http://www.greenerpasturesfarm.com/C...eedRecipe.html that intrigues me. I guess I need to know.. what do I feed them?

I want to fence in an acre for the chickens. Any idea on how much that would cost? Next year I'll add the goats (or a cow depending on which milk we decide on) to that pasture when I buy them! LOL

chickens need different fencing than goats and cows. Cows can be easly kept in with barbed or electric wire. Birds can get out of the livestock wire used gor goats and cows can get their feet stuck in it.so.....You could use livestock woven wire with extra chicken wire at the bottom.
