Hi gang, I'm new at this and need some help. I have 23 (used to be 25) white rocks. Up until now I've free fed. I lost one two weeks ago that never grew as fast as the others, he looked like he couldn't breath so we put him down. Lost one big one last Friday night to what I think was a heart attack. He was dead, flat on his back! So I read some posts on this blog and decided to only feed ever 12 hours (my aunt recommenede this too). Wasn't too bad this morning but when I fed them tonight they were crazy hungry, pushing and shoving, gorging themselves. Now I have two that look like they have indigestion, they seem to be almost burping or hiccuping. Another one had been badly pecked during the day today so I've segregated him, think he might go under the axe soon. A cousin told me never withhold feed because they will gorge themselves and the commercial feed swells in their stomachs and kills them. He also recommended mixing some grains into the feed to prevent that swelling. I'm not sure what to do now . . . HELP!!!
