OK I bought the Hubbard strain of the cornish x and from Ideal.... I do not keep the food from them at night as they are in the pen with the other egg chicks that get feed 24 x 7... sooooooo I am still having one so "flip" full crop, just drop dead about one per week. When I had the "cornish broiler" from Meyers (or Mcmurrays I forget) I did not have the problem. These grow slower. I do not want to seperate the meat birds, for if I withhold feed, (I have tried before) they will start eating each other or the egg chicks. So how can anyone "tractor" chickens 24 x 7 feed/grass and they not flip? I am sure that this is not a result of preaditors or desease. Should I just start breeding RIR/Cornish/White Rock "meat mutts" which grow slower but still get to 9/10 lbs..... Please advise. I like the cornish cross, Or maybe back to Meyers? Central or Welp? who has the best success and where do you get your cornish x?????
