I have a patch about 15 meters by 2 meters where i have planted some fruit trees, i was wondering if there is anything i can grow there that i can use as chicken feed?
the soil isn't fantastic there, it's very heavy clay and does get boggy in the winter (when it rains a lot) and it's in partial shade

I picked up one of my hens a few days ago and my two roosters came running and squared up to me so i squared up back at them and gave a bit of a roar they haven't done it since. My last rooster tried the same so i gave him a little push and a roar and that put an end to that. It's funny because that same rooster would always harass my mum and it actually pecked her a couple of times until she did same as me. He soon leaned his place! It might be worth a try. I'm glad he was a bit of a rowdy boy because he did his job when a fox came by, but thinking about it if i ever thought any of them were a threat to my kids they'd very quickly be served up as dinner!

Do guinea fowls make a lot of noise? are they as bad as a rooster?

I want the birds i get to be self replacing rather than having to buy in new chicks?

I've had a look at the idea of maybe raising pigeons? has anyone got any experience of raising these for meat?

Rabbits are definitely a no no i don't like them.

I wasn't referring to more chickens i'm quite happy with the ones i have for now. I was asking about a different bird species? eg quail etc. does any keep any or have any suggestions

can you guy's suggest some different types of birds that i can raise for meat? i don't have a huge amount of space just my back garden which is about 1/4 acre half of which is used to grow veg and fruit, the other half is for my kids to play. i want to keep them in some sort of aviary type set up so i know where they are and are easy to catch. I do already keep chickens but because of the space there is a limit to the number i can keep.
can i keep the birds in the same pen as my chickens?

what does everyone use for bedding and litter? and how often do you clean your coop.
