You're highly welcm. No. 1 tip is to start small and learn from ur mistakes. 2. Follow a good vaccination/medication plan. Keep the pen neat and free of ammonia smell. This can eventually lead to respiratory problem. Feed them well. Build a good pen for them, a pen that will keep them cool in hot weather etc.

It depends on how dirty it gets. Clean it whenever u start perceiving ammonia smell or when it is wet. Note that u'll have to stoop low with ur nose at bird level before u ccan detect low concentratn of ammonia. Cleaning often won't stress them like a dirty house would. The amt to start with depends on how much u can afford to loose without worrying too much. If u calculate the cost of raising 300 birds and u can comfortably loss that kind of money, then go ahead.
