I read the pages and pages of posts about these birds, and so I decided to give it a go, canceled my order from MMH for 100 Cornish Mutants and called JM Hatchery and ordered 100 Rangers...only by whatever name he calls them, cant recall. I am very excited about them, just couldnt get enthusiastic about raising birds that can barely walk but I didnt know there WERE any other good options for meat birds. My question is regarding feed-MMH had told me to feed the Cornish turkey starter to prevent their legs from giving out...do I need a higher protein for these guys, or will regular chick starter be ok? Should I let them have access to feed day/night, or do I need to take it away ever? (They will be free ranging during the day) What age/size should I process them for fryers, and what age/size is best for roasters? Also, if anyone knows of a link that gives a thorough background story on these birds, I would be grateful. I put it together from all of the posts, but I would like to have something that tells the story start to finish, rather than try to "sum it all up" for my family. They wont quite get my enthusiasm I think! Thanks a bunch!
