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.

Note: If you are ordering large numbers of Jumbo Cornish Cross, you will receive a significant price break by ordering from our Bulk Jumbo Cornish for bulk pricing on this breed.

Chicks November 25, 2015
Reviewer: Jill Moreland from Bryan, TX United States  
I love e-Fowl's service and communication. They kept in constant communication letting me know when my chicks would arrive and when they shipped. The chicks arrived in great shape and I only lost one. But, they did give me an extra in case I lost one. I love the fact that the shipping is included in the cost of the chicks! Will do business with them again!

50 Jumbo Cornish Cross chicks / fast delivery! November 11, 2015
Reviewer: Debra Hopkins from Stevenson, WA United States  
We are very happy with our choice to order from efowl.com...  We weren't going to raise any CC chicks this year because we put our purchase off till way late in the season.  But when I found efowl's web site, and saw they had a weekend sale going on, the price was so good, and we got free shipping, we couldn't resist.  I ordered on Saturday night; got confirmation on Monday that my order would ship in 1-3 days, they came on Thursday!  All chicks came happy, healthy and very sturdy...  A week later, they are all still just great, haven't lost one, even though the weather is chilly, the heat lamps in their barn are keeping them plenty warm.  Hopefully we will have a Mild January come butchering time!  We will definitely order from efowl.com again!
