How much space for 25 Cornish X
At least 100 sq ft in the coop, and at least 8 to 10 sq ft in the run. Id suggest alittle more space for cornish x
from what i have read a 4x8 tractor would do fine for the hole time u would have them
Quote:I disagree- Cornish X's need much less space than layers in my opinion. I've raised several batches of 25 in a 6x10 tractor from week 3 til butcher day, and I could have put more in it without problems. They mainly just lay around either eating, sleeping, or waiting for you to bring food. And DEFINITELY do it in a moveable tractor, or you'll be cleaning a disgusting mess several times per day.
You may be right but I like my birds to have plenty of space.
If you have a way to free range them during the day I recommend it. My Cornish X loved getting out and free ranging our yard during the day. They were quite active for such big birds.
