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.

Review May 12, 2015
Reviewer: Jeffrey Crane from East Jordan, MI United States  
Chicks all look similar so I can't comment on the breed itself.  Four chicks died within 24 hours of receiving them.  Other chicks doing fine.

beautiful birds as always May 12, 2015
Reviewer: laura Cavallari from DEERING, NH United States  
i've been doing broilers for quite awhile. i find that starting them on regular chick starter for two weeks, makes a huge difference in their health and never have any leg problems, then they go on broiler feed after that. i let them grow for 13 weeks and then process the 10 largest the first weekend, then pick the next 10 largest the following weekend and so on.they finish out dressed at about 9 to 10 lbs.excellent meat,
thankyou
