Gonna try meat birds next spring. I'd like to know how the Ideal CX are. Do you have to limit feed from day one? How did they turn out? Would you recommend? If not, why not? Healthy? I'm staying away from the broilers b/c of the crowing in the neighborhood. Don't want to announce to the world. So, harvesting in 8 weeks sounds like a plan. Building chicken tractors that will be moved to fresh pasture daily. Biggest worry are the family dogs. Got the layers in the kennel fencing and dog proofed that.
