Poultry Raising Basics

The internet offers a wide range of information on how to raise poultry. You'll want to consider whether you want to raise poultry for meat or for eggs. You'll have to consider such issues as housing, fencing, feeding, watering, equipment, all of which can be found in a Google search.

If you want to stay a bit closer to home, here are some local resources:

Hatchery: Dunlap Hatchery on Caldwell Boulevard. (www.DunlapHatchery.net)

Feed: Local mills include Zamzows Feed Mill in Meridian and Mathews Feed in Weiser.
