When to pasture Cornish Crosses?
this is my first attempt at raising meat birds. I have been diligent about 12 hours on/off feeding schedule. My birds are almost two weeks old and are not interested much into the heating lamp. I've adjusted the temps up and down and they just don't seem to care for it anymore. I would like to move them outside and get them started on pasture. They are now starting to fly outside of their box, so I was thinking to get them started on attempting chicken life early. My thought was around four weeks.
If I do this, should I have a heat lamp outside for the next couple of weeks. It gets about sixty at night here.
Many thanks for any and all advice and comments ~ Cheers
