Have you considered something that can forage better than chickens like ducks and geese? They would both require less feed, less housing requirements, and their meat is a thousand times better in my opinion.

I had this same thought when I kept rabbits, then I found out that I like the meat of wild rabbits way more. My new plan is to create a few rabbit edens. I'm thinking there could be a brush pile in the middle or something they'd like for a home, surrounded by a perimeter of raspberry bushes, with clover and other tasty plants for them planted throughout and maybe even a water source put in. Then repeat this a few times in different locations since they're territorial. With any luck, I think a place like this would attract the wild ones and I could set a trap in their runs when I decide I want rabbit for dinner.
