What's everyone's secrets to creating a tasty bird. I've heard all kinds of stories such as feed them hog feed then the last 2 weeks let then free range or free range them then feed them lots of starter/Grower. I wanna know what everyone thinks the best way to make your bird taste the best after slaughter is. Is it all in perfect timing, The Breed, The Recipe or how you grow it????

Last 14 days, heavy corn based ration, free range on fresh lush grass and lots of chopped up apples, same for home raised hogs.

Depends on the breed, if it's a traditional type breed I will pen them to restrict free ranging for the last few weeks feed corn, greens and bread, if it's a Cornish x or Ranger type hybrid I just feed corn mix & let them free range grass, clover & chick weed.

Hope this helps.
