    Just reduce his regular feed a little if u got time u will see he's loosing some fat . U got to have him where u can handle him every now and then. It works for me.

    Update: 1/10/19
    1) The one that started 6-4 is now at 5-12, I am going to hold him at that weight from this point. Going to measure out his feed to 2 1/4 and see how he does.
    2) The 6-8 cock is down to 6-1, I have increased his feed volume to 1.7 oz once a day. He still feels like lead. Great looking very sharp. I like a cock that feels lite in your hands. Not there.

    Correction to original post: I am using Super Spur to mix in their feed. About .2 oz mixed into the Cooked barley and fresh tomato. May double Super Spur amount.
