We have had our 14 cornish rock meat birds since the April 25 (thats when they were born) and we are not sure how much to feed them. They are in a 6x10.5 cage. Should we free range them? Please let us know.

Give them as much as they will eat in a 12 hour period, then take away the food at night. As Buck Creek said, if they're Cornish X's, they should be about ready to butcher. Free ranging is up to you, depending on your facilities.
