    I always keep my cornishx on 19% or less. They don' grow quite as fast but also don't die and have less fat on the carrcass.Much nicer bird.[/RIGHT]

    If you'd like to make your chicken have better looking feathers, a little bit of cat food in the can is good for that and it provides great protien, plus chickens loveeee it xD
