I'm trying to figure out the exact breed of my 4 oldest chickens. My kids grandparents got them chicks for Easter from a local Mennonite farm. They say they're Cobb.
We have no interest in using them for meat, so trying to take the best care of them to prolong their life.

Managing a meat bird for long-term maintenance is all about limiting feed intake and promoting movement/exercise. Cobb is just another broiler - so you can easily read the information for Cornish Cross, etc and follow the same program to try to raise your birds out.

X2 on Old Grey Mare's post. And even with limiting food intake and promoting exercise, most likely will not live to be a year old. Due to their abnormal growth rates, at some point these broilers are likely going to develop some severe heath problems.
