If this has been asked before I apologize. As many of you know McMurray's minimum is 25 chicks. I do not need 25 chickens, so I was thinking of eating some of the extras. I want those who lay eggs to have all the nutrients that they need for production but I would like the chickens that I am going to eat to have some meat on them. What feed is good for both laying eggs and meat? Before anyone asks, I did not think, before I ordered to include some meat birds in my order of25. That would have made the whole thing much easier but I got over excited about all the wonderful breeds of laying hens. I have Jersey Giants, Buff Orpingtons and Red Stars.
