    Wife just ordered some White cornish rocks for June 2nd YIKES [​IMG], I better get going on the chicken tractor.
    What type of feed do you use for meat birds ? I would prefer too use non-medicated, but probably could start them on medicated.

    topic was started in march, some helpful tidbits for you. i start mine on chick starter/ developer from bomgaar's. they get scraps, and i also dig up unwanted grass from garden area and feed that. they are pigs and will eat anything. i have 11 and do pretty well supplying them with leftovers to supplement the finisher they are on now at 5 weeks.

    I feed mine Purina Flock Raiser start to finish. Seems to take them about a week longer on it but I have no flips.
