Me I like quality over quantity but if there is a middle ground if fed a proper diet then I can see maybe giving a Cornish x a chance
The only other thing that I can think to ask is the difference in mortality was there a big difference in pree slater deaths
If you google anything about protein and poultry feed, you will find an huge amount of information. You will need to weed through a lot of links to threads like this to get to the science, but there is a TON of science on this.

Of course there is. But spelling it out is perhaps beyond the scope of this forum?
One of the questions I often have is how to translate the information about poultry feed that comes from The Industry, where birds are only expected to live a few weeks (Industrial broilers) or a few months (industrial layers), to something that is useful for birds we expect to be healthy & productive for perhaps years.
