we r going to attempt raising 50 cornish x chickens. we have plenty of space for them and from what i have read, 20# of feed is expected from each bird. the only thing that i havent found alot of info on is raising them in the wisconsin winter months. the lower part of our barn is sectioned off by concrete walls as it once was used for horses. the stalls are about 9'x10' so i planned on using two of them. 25 birds per stall. the stalls also have rubber floors that may help with the cold but im not sure how hardy these birds are. i will have at least 2 heat lamps in each stall and i hope as the birds get older, they will b able to withstand the cold. i guess im looking for some answers on that and if i should just wait till spring. friends and family have already put their orders in for us to raise the birds so im hoping we wont have any problems. thanks for any responces and in general to BYC. this is a great place to learn.
