The paddock method will work well for our space and lifestyle- may start with 10 and add more as I see how we do. I did try to watch the video on how to kill and clean a bird. I know I can do it- it just belabored the cutting of the throat and I stopped the video- get r done and move on! I'm not a suirmy most of the time and I will probably be the one stuck with the chore as pregnant young ladies will not be required to do that in my house. My husband is a tender heart- and I thank God for that. I would have been a good prairie girl. backyardchickens here I come.... Thank you all!
