    I have purchase some cornish x for processing later. I want to keep them separate from my other flock and will be revamping the coop for them. Do I need to have a roost available for them or will they stay on the floor?
    Thanks!

    You don't want your meat birds jumping off a roost. They could really injure themselves because of their fast growth they go through. I don't raise my meat birds with my layers. [​IMG]
