I mentioned this idea(Meat chickens in Fencing) to a farmer friend of mine who raises his layers this way, but does his broilers Salatin style. He says that Cornish Crosses are too lazy, and they would not forage enough if they were not moved everyday. He says they would just move to the shadiest spot and lay there, so this would not work, according to him. Obviously, the easy answer is raise a different breed, but does anyone have any other ideas or rebuttal to this, because a lot of people will ONLY raise Cornish Crosses.

I am new to permaculture. What is the first book I should read. Also, I am looking to purchase some land in south west Tennessee and start my own farm. I know Paul says, "90% of your own food and $200,000 a year." How much land is he talking about? I KNOW there are a lot of variables. I just want an idea. The property would be for one large family, one small family, and possibly a couple of interns, probably 12 to 15 people in all. Would 25 acres be enough? 50? Again, I know there is not a definitive answer, but I would just like to hear some opinions. I plan to work "off the farm" for income for at least two years, but I would like to farm full time eventually. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks and God bless,
