Jumbo Cornish Cross Chicken

The Jumbo Cornish Cross, or Cornish Rock Cross took over the commercial chicken meat industry within the last fifty years and is an extensively developed cross between Cornish and White Rock Chickens. The Cornish Cross Broilers are so successful and popular because of their outstanding speed of growth and quality of meat. Males can reach up to 4.5 pounds after just 6 weeks and up to 9.5 after 11 weeks.

The hens are typically marketed as Cornish Game Hens and can reach up to 2.5 pounds around 5 weeks. It's recommended to harvest the hens around 3 pounds for the most tender broiler meat.

The Broiler Chickens, as they are also commonly referred to, have white feathers and yellow skin. They are also preferred for broiler birds because they lack the hair on the skin that is typical to many other breeds. This breed of chicken is bred specifically for its meat and due to its exceptionally fast growth its legs will not be able to healthily support its body after a certain point. It is also not recommended to breed this bird because keeping the bird healthy long enough to fully mature and breed properly is difficult, and the offspring of this breed will not create as successful of offspring.

fast growing! April 12, 2016
Reviewer: Eric Carlson from Mendon, MA United States  
Chicks arrived on date and time they were supposed to and there were about 12 extras. We only had a few casualties. I honestly think it was due to the cold. But all are healthy and growing fast! Soon will be ordering ducklings from efowl.

Experience with E Fowl April 7, 2016
Reviewer: martyn griffin from woodford, VA United States  
This is the first time I have purchased from you but it definitely won't be the last. Arrived healthy and hungry. We ordered 60 and have 3 extra but unfortunately one was dead. But the remainder were great and in the week we have had them they have continued to do well. Thank you for your excellent service

50+ chicks March 29, 2016
Reviewer: Kassandra Walters from Portland, OR United States  
Very happy with my purchase.  I only lost a few in the transport but they sent more than I ordered anyway.  The mailman thought it was pretty hilarious they were chirping like crazy when he brought them to the door.

Had some issues with birds arriving healthy. But more than willing to replace/refund the lost birds.
Great service
