My broilers are done for the Summer and I am thinking about trying my hand at some Pekins. I have done some searches in this section, but can't find what I'm looking for, so I have a few basic questions: -What type of feed(s) do you feed them? I'm looking for composition and protein level and when I need to switch. -Can they be raised in a tractor on pasture? -Any sicknesses or diseases to watch out for? -Do Pekins handle hot weather well? -Any other things a beginner needs to know? That's all I can think of right now. Please excuse me for asking such basic questions. If there is a info thread that I have missed, please direct me to it.
