Hi Brad and welcome to BYP.
Without trying to sound negative here, my advice is to proceed with caution and get some professional financial/legal advice (and apologies if you already know all this).
There may be a small market thru places like Gumtree and word of mouth but to advertise poultry for food may require liability insurance.
This market will be limited to those who want to eat free range and are also prepared to process live birds themselves - or you will need to be compliant if you wish to sell the end product.
To sell larger numbers to the meat buyers would probably require you to be registered as free range in order to get reasonable prices and you would be competing with established large commercial enterprises.
There are also regulations around infrastructure for commercial free range.
