We had laying hens for a bit before I wondered if it was possible to raise meat chickens and be more self-reliant, even though we live in the city. We experimented by raising a small batch of Cornish Cross. That first batch definitely had its good points and its bad points. All in all I decided to do it again but with a few changes.
Can You Raise Meat Chickens In the City?
My goal was to raise meat chickens for less then $15 a bird, which was I pay at the grocery store for an organic bird.
