    I have 26 Cornish X that I have been feeding Nature Wise Meatbird 22 percent. The instructions on the bag say to feed start to finish and don't let feeders run empty. However I have seen a couple places on here where people mention to feed 12hrs on then 12hrs off. I don't know if this is a general rule or for specific feeds? Thanks

    I have had the most luck with 24-hour feed for my meaties, if they don't have constant feed to support their rapid growth, they could die. However, I use the 12on 12off for my layers.
