Dark Cornish Chicken

The Cornish Chicken is a heavy breed developed in Cornwall, England and an excellent broiler bird. Known as the "Indian Game" in England because of it's strong game bird heritage, the Cornish Chicken is one of the parent breeds of the modern day Cornish Cross broiler chicken used in commercial chicken meat production.

The Cornish Chicken is a wide chested bird with thick muscular legs. It requires a substantial amount of feed, but does have an exceptional conversion of feed to meet ratio. It is possible that the Cornish Chicken will actually develop too quickly, having some leg problems when its wide-set frame overcomes the strength of its legs.

Cornish Chickens are not good egg layers, but they are excellent birds for meat; and their outstanding meat qualities make them a prime breed to cross with many other varieties of chicken to create the ideal backyard meat chicken.
