I am trying meat birds for the first time and to be honest, I'm not doing well. I'm having big losses by the birds trampling each other. I had them in a spare bedroom for the last 4 weeks. (PEEYOOO) There were in a VERY large appliance box and we keep it 70 in our house. I would find one every couple of days dead from trampling. I've moved the food several times in relationship to the lamp trying to find a happy medium and nothing seemed to work. I was hoping now that the husband had the 8 x 12 brooder completed, moving them to a more open area to roam around would help but this morning I had more losses than ever. They had all decided to sleep in the feed tray rather than under the lamp and I lost 3 more. I'm open to any suggestions.
