    Since it is so very hot here I have waited until now to place my order for meat birds.

    I ordered from McMurray and will be getting the Jumbo Cornish X next week.

    My question is how soon do I change over from the starter feed to the broiler feed?

    We plan to process them at 8 or 10 week max.

    It will be called something like "Broiler Starter/Finisher" or sometimes "Fryer Starter/Finisher". You don't change feed with meat birds. Their existence is brief.
