    Hi all,
    I'm not new to chickens but new to the meaties.. I currently have 23 Freedom Rangers and 6 CRx's, 1 week olds. I have them on a 28% turkey starter 24/7, but I know later on to not have food in front of them all the time. At approximately what age should I start doing 12hrs with food and 12 without? I thought I read somewhere that at 4 weeks you should do that switch, but I'm not positive. I have a tractor outside ready for them when its time to head out.

    I do have access to Southern States feeds and Purina. SS makes an all-grain poultry Grow n Finish, and I know Purina has their Flock raiser to switch them to later on...
