i ordered 50 cornish cross from the same place i have always ordered... got them around july 1st. that would put them at around 3 1/2 months. i have fed them the EXACT same way i have always. normally our dressed weight is around 6-8 lbs. ill bet money that several of these wont make 2lbs dressed ( they arent as big as my bantys) with maybe a few around 4lbs. im bummed. the feed they get is locally chopped and right around 18 - 20 percent protein. i feed chick starter for the first 4 weeks. ill be butchering this weekend. they eat like crazy and they arent getting any bigger, so time for them to go. they are completly healthy, for the most part. i have one with a really weird beak and another with a funny neck, both had it as day olds. i have lost a few for no apparent reason.. they just seem off one day and i find em dead the next. anyone else have this happen?? i have called the feed store i got them from and let them know. they said that they hadnt heard of anyone else having issues. i didnt do anything different. i think i will switch where i order my cornish cross from... im not willing to take this chance again!
