The cornish are nice birds, but,,, while I have never had birds, I have read about cornish and I know what is ahead for them and am not sure I am ready for this part of the venture just yet. But with that being said.
They are two weeks old and eat... and eat... and eat and then they eat some more.. so I was reading and read that I might want to take their food out at night.. which I started a couple nights ago.. but when I replaced the food in the morning, they were so scared they ate until their crop was just about to blow.. it was so gourged it was about passed their beaks and rock hard.. so all day today I feed them about every two hours for 1/2 hour or until I thought they started to look too full. Not scientific I know.. but it looks really bad..
Please advise, am I making it worse by limiting their food and making them panic? It is too cold just to shut their light out at night.. I did try that and they constantly try to lay under each other.
