    Maybe I'm stereotyping (or speaking for myself) but I feel like it would be hard for me to butcher my own animal - but I've been considering it. It would save a lot of money, probably healthier than whats in the stores. I'm just wondering if I can actually do it. Any city people doing this?

    We are trying to prepare the space for some layers and probably a rooster. We have the coop ready other than the nesting boxes, but we're trying to come up with an inexpensive way to make a chicken run that won't look trashy. I saw some cute chicken runs that were basically some wood posts made...
