    anybody have experience with these things?

    Do you need to pull the feed away from these things like you do the rock cornish X?

    i've been pulling the feed, but that's a PAIN for my "automated" setups.

    I havent bought from McMurray, but I get Cornish Giants from Rochester (same birds I think) and I give them free choice until 3 weeks, then limit their intake as they will eat themselves to death.

    From 3 weeks until slaughter I feed am and pm and provide clean water, lush pasture and some hen scratch during the day to get them to move about!

    Good luck!
