We have started raising one group of broilers each year for our own freezer. They are easy to raise and provide us with a lot of excellent tasting meat.
They require a minimum amount of space so they do not peck each other, but otherwise, they just require clean bedding and food and water. They are not ambitious birds in any way. They pretty much just sit around and eat.
We fed them on commercial chicken feed and did not free range them as we usually raise them in early spring before there is any grass to put them on.
