Okay what I'm thinking of doing with my roos is stop them free roaming the yard, feed them the meat bird feed, and go ahead with that. This will fatten them up right?? About how long will I need to do this till ther a more eatable weight?? they are about 8 weeks now. I have to feed them meat bird food right?? The normal chick starter won't cut it right. That is what they are on right now.
