I never raised for meat before. I have a broody buff orp., great mama, and thinking about giving her some cornish x to hatch. butchering help available 3rd wk of July. If they hatch out end of May, and I let her take care of them, can I successfully raise them til that time, just putting out food during the day? My laying hens range the fenced city yard during the day and are confined to a predator-proof dog kennel with roosts at night. If I do this, would I leave the cornish x in the kennel all day with food and water or will they forage even a little? Overall: Is this is dumb idea?
