Looked into the dark cornish. I think I'm going to add some after we slaughter the ones we don't plan to keep from the 50 we have now (I also already have 18 that are fully grown or almost fully grown). I was thinking about crossing them with my white rocks to breed my own meat chickens.
We have almost 11 acres here that is walking distance to the Coosa river/Lay lake but about 9 of them are completely wooded still and what's not has soil that isn't much more than red clay and rocks so we built a few raised garden. beds to use while composting all of the bedding from our chickens/goats/rabbit to use for next years beds.
I will definitely look into the chaya and maringo trees. Thanks!!
