Just cracked corn? That doesn't provide adequate nutrients. If you're talking about corn IN the feed, I'd say the majority of your feed IS cracked corn.

I think it's all mostly corn- at least the mill ground stuff. It's hard to tell what the little grey indistinguishable pellets that make up prebagged food are actually made of!

Because of the speed which the Cornish X grows at, a corn diet will result in many crippled birds and many deaths by heart attack. They require large amounts of vits/mins not found in plain corn. Most starters lack enough vits/mins for Cornish X--if available buy broiler feed--if not use a 22% to 28% protein chick or game bird starters until you butcher. Feed 12 hrs on and 12 hrs off with vit/min fortified water 24 hrs per day.
