    Can anyone tell me what is the best starter feed? I am getting some cornish hens and I do not have a clue. Also how much should I feed them fron start to finish. Thanks to all.

    "Best" is very hard to define, and to justify one's choice, and is based on what might be locally available.

    Any quality, name brand, reputable chick start will work just fine. Do you want medicated, yes or no. That's a choice. Make an informed, intelligent decision. Do you need or want organic? That is also a decision and should be based on an informed opinion and how thick your wallet is.


    Cornish or CornishX meat birds, btw?
