    Do you need to take feed away at night for slow grow cornish and red broilers like you do for the fast grow ones? I never heard of anyone doing so but....

    Some folks do this quite often, they say it helps prevent the leg and heart problems that tend to plaque this breed. those that do usually don't mind the extra week or two waiting for them to get up to weight before processing, for them it beats a low mortality rate. you may also want to try a lesser protein feed, that would also help slow it a bit.
