    Tyson keeps their secrets well hidden, from diet to genetics, etc.... so that's a mistery <!-- s:-) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:-) -->

    Commercial broiler farms feed a high protein, balanced commercial diet specially designed for quick growth. They have a high percentage or cracked corn and wheat, as well as balanced rations of vitamins and minerals. Many farm stores carry comercial broiler diets that are very similar in composition (if not the same) to what commercial broiler farms feed. In colder months, fat amount in the feed increases to help the birds keep body temperature. A broiler chick with good genetics should gain a pound of body weight per 2 pounds of feed, that is a way of telling if the food you are giving is good quality.
