Looking for some recomendations for a good 4-h meat bird diet mix, and any helpful tips for optimal growth. Both my kids have decided to do a meat bird project this year, and that's a realm I don't have a good deal of experience with. I have an area set aside in my garage and plan to get 12 birds for the two of them to allow for losses and to give some choice between. Each kid has to show 3 birds...my son will be taking the best 3, and my daughter whos focus is on layers will be taking the next three...the rest I will process for personal use. So, however crazy or pecular the brew of dinner fare, lets hear it....thanks in advance.
