We did Cornish cross this past spring. We only did 30 of them and had 4 die, 30 isn't enough for the year for a family of 4 plus guest once in a while, so we are considering stepping it up to 100. With 100 birds I have a few questions. We live in central Arkansas (info needed for question 3). Our spring meaties avg 5.5 lbs on the hook. 1. Can we do a fodder system? If so 2. how much fodder should I start and continue to have growing? 3. Can I buy them now and grow them out or should I wait till spring? 4. If we do them this time of year, what is the coldest they can handle? 5.If my math is correct I will need about 1300# (25 bags)+/- of feed, will any stores give me a discount if I buy it all at once in a bag, can't do bulk loose since I don't have storage for that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
