    I will be at my other place for a majority of the summer this year and it is at 7,000 feet of elevation in Wyoming.

    Is there any recommendation for meat bird to raise? Will CX make it for any length of time that high?

    I think they'll be ok, The cooler air will help. I would probably not push them after the 3rd week with too high of protein and no 24 hour feeding.
    Freedom rangers or another broiler might be a better choice.
