    What is the ideal finisher for Cornish CX? I can get 20% or 16% and of course the latter is much cheaper. They are 6 weeks old.

    Thanks!

    I like to push mine for maximum growth. That means the higher protein feed. I want them as large as possible at 8 weeks.

    That is the time we started broiler feed. We got 22% protein from the feed mill and they were going through 2, 50lbs bags a week.

    I ended up getting a 20%. They also have a gamebird that is 28% but that seems like too much protein!
