Interested in hearing from anyone who has a meat king (cornish x) kept back as a pet and what they feed it. I have two five month olds. I am feeding them 1 cup of layer mash in the morning, about 1 cup of ground up carrot noonish (with a bit of layer mash in that), and 1 cup of layer mash in the evening. I am feeding layer mash to them as we have a few laying hens so just decided to use that. I have no idea if this is satisfactory or not, but I know if they don't get 'lunch' they are absolutely out of their minds at supper time. They are, unfortunately, not free range, and have a coop and small outside area at present. I also put some ground kelp meal in a container for them that they finish each day (about 2 tablespoons), and some grit (just in case). I won't starve them to keep them around longer, but I don't want to kill them with kindness either. Thanks.
