    Anything I should know about meat chicks? I am getting 6-12 cornish x chicks this week and I was woundering if there were any special care I need to give them as chicks? I have raised many layer chicks but never meat birds. Do i use the same feed or is there a special meat chick feed?

    I recommend Nutrena Meat Bird feed, start to finish.
