    i know we've talked about this before but since there are more people perusing this section, i thought i'd bring it up again.

    i have a friend raising the red bros and the other day she informed me that the last two weeks, she was going to feed them straight scratch (which is more than just corn) to the red bros.

    i know alot of people on here (feed the cornish corn) do that for the last week to get more fat and that's what she said she was doing it for.


    my thought is that the red bros grow slower than the cornish and the last two weeks before processing is when they really put on their weight and so switching them to all scratch, i didn't think would be a great idea.

    your thoughts please.

    Honestly I have never raised the red bro, but I swiched to scracth the last two weeks as I want all the chemicals that the commercial feed contains out of their system.
