Yet Another Newbie Feeding?

    This is our first time with meat birds, and I have yet another feeding question. I have CRX from Ideal that are advertised as fast growing. They are 2 weeks old now, I have been free feeding them. I had read that you should give them feed for 12 hours during the day and then take the feed away for 12 hours at night. Does anyone do this, and is it a good idea?

    Thanks, Sonja

    After the first week to 10 days I take away food from my CXs at night. Their hearts look nice and healthy when processed so I think it's a good idea. [​IMG]
