So, I've read through all the pages of the thread about fully raising your cornish crosses on pasture. The thread was encouraging and I want to do it with the meat birds I get next spring. But, talked to several people that raise their birds in chicken tractors about letting them range, and they all seem to think that it's not possible. It's been discouraging. What they say is that they will overwork the space beside the waterer, they are too nasty and will kill your grass, they won't forage enough to survive, and things along these lines. I'm sure some, if not most, of these people have never tried it and are going by what they were told. I've also been told that pigs can't be pastured and won't eat hay, but they do. So, I wanted to get some opinions from people who have actually done it or seen it done. I'm not decided yet on what kind of meat birds I'll get, so I'm open to opinions on that too.
