I once knew a Hawaiian man that swore on feeding his meat birds (Cornish X) a sweet feed plus meat bird feed. That it would lend a better, sweeter taste to the meat. Any truth to this??

I've fed meat chickens sweet feed when I had left over from a project, they had about 50# worth the week or so before butchering. Didn't notice any difference when butchered

They say that if you caponize (castrate) or poulardize (spay) your 1-2 lb chicks, that will sweeten the meat. I haven’t tried this yet, but I do plan to Soon. Eggs in the bator now.

ETA: for spaying it’s supposed to be around 14 weeks.
