Ok so I'me new to this meat bird thing, my CornishX will be one week tomorrow and are growing like weeds fat weeds at that. Right now they had access to feed round the clock at what point do I cut it down to twice a day? I plan on free ranging them when they get a little older.

You don't cut it down to twice a day. It is recommended you give them access to feed for 12 hours and take it away for 12. I put down feed for mine at 7 in the morning and took it away at seven at night. I also found it helpful to put Broiler Booster available from Murray McMurray in the water. Start the 12 hours on and 12 hours off now.
