Maybe I started them to young, but I tried the 12 hr on, 12 hrs off feeding method for my cornish x two days ago. They are about 2 weeks old at this point. I tried taking the food away around 8 PM, thinking that they would mostly sleep at night and not notice it was gone. Well, the constant scuffling in the brooder has kept me awake for the past two nights! They seem really freaked out about the lack of food. It was so bad that I got up at 5AM and gave them food last night just so they would calm down so I could go to sleep for a few hours before I had to get up for work. What am I doing wrong? Or is this just how it goes normally? They eat like they are starving when I put the feed down in front of them in the morning. Maybe they are just too young to try this? I am worried though because they are gaining weight really fast (which I know is normal) and I don't want them to develop health issues before slaughter.
