    Me and my father in law want to butcher a couple of hens that I have. I was wondering what do I need to feed them to fatten them up?? What kinda feed should I pick up at the local feed store?? Thank you!!!

    Feed them cracked corn 2 weeks prior to slaughter and they will put on a nice fat layer and leave a great flavor.
