my understanding is if they grow up with a good foraging breed they can & will forage. i would ferment what feed they you do give them so they get more out of it & to save on your feed bill.I have about an 8x10 area in side for them(part of the barn) and a 10x25 area outside for them. I was thinking of getting 10 off each. It might be a little tight. I could expand the outside but I thought meat birds done forage that much.
she didn't say cornish by name so she could have been just talking about DP cockerels that were for meatI was only talking about meat birds as in a heritage breed where they are together for a longer amount if time... But it's good to know that a Cornish cross would not likely harm the turkeys
