Poultry
I would like to raise organic chickens commercially. I find they seem to be very hard to buy. Where could I find some information or help on setting up this kind of operation We have 5 acres and are not certified as yet,but the farmer we bought the property off doesnt use sprays and this shows with the abundent worm life on the property any help would be appreciated.
