My first question would be...have you ever raised chickens or any other 
livestock before?

Maybe this isn't the right list because it seems to be only gardening questions lately, but I would like to explore the possibility of growing out broilers for local buyers. Does everyone process their own chickens on-site, or are there processors that will do small batches for a farmer? I'm thinking I will not want to do more than 500 birds at a time. Also, what kinds of regulations are involved with raising that quantity of chickens on a 10-20 acre pasture? There won't be the typical chicken houses like the Tyson growers use.
