    My meaties go in to be processed next Saturday at 8 weeks. I ran out of food and we are 4 hours from town! Can I give them cracked corn, scratch, lay pellets or any combination of those for the next 5 days? Oh, and they are also free ranging. Literally they are running...or waddling, loose in the back yard

    Yes they will be fine, but will not gain much more weight without the high protein feed.
