    I went to the feed store (TSC) and they had almost 60 3 week old cornish rocks for 1.89 so i got 4 and they are bigger that my others so i put them in my dog kennel and i am wondering a couple things.
    1. When are the ready to butcher?
    2. What should i feed them to get ready to butcher?
    3. Should I feed them eggs?

    1.They are going to be ready to butcher in about 7-8 weeks. 2.They have special feed formulated for meat birds it very high in protien and other ingrediants so they can grow faster 3.they love scrambled eggs but I would make sure to chop them up a bit and add a lil bit of chick grit.GL [​IMG]
