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.

Jumbo Cornish X August 23, 2016
Reviewer: Wesley Edwards from haines city, FL United States  
Ordered 40 birds, received 42 and lost 2 the first couple of days which in my experience is a  low mortality rate. I am back to my original order number so I couldn't be happier with the service. The chicks came quickly and they are vibrant, happy , and HUNGRRRYYYY (they are Cornish X so if they're not hungry something ain't right!)

Meat Chickens August 17, 2016
Reviewer: Jeanette Sirianni from Elk, WA United States  
We have had our chicks for about a week, an extra was sent with my order and we have not lost a single one!  A huge relief for me to have healthy birds after my earlier experience this year with another hatchery.  Thanks!

Very Happy with our purchase June 30, 2016
Reviewer: Kathleen Bobbitt from Moosup, CT United States  
All 25 Jumbo Cornish Cross Chicks were delivered safe and sound and have been growing amazingly quick. After a few days they already are growing feathers, and eat all the time.
They are strong and active.
The purchase was easy and delivery was sooner than expected. This was our second purchase from eFoul and we will be making more purchases in the future. I give it 4 stars because they are only a few days old, we have yet to see how things continue through the next several weeks.

Excellent Customer Service June 21, 2016
Reviewer: Mark Schecterson from Heron, MT United States  
The chicks were shipped on a Monday and arrived at our local post office Wednesday morning. We placed an order for 60 Jumbo Cornish Cross however eFowl shipped an additional 3. I typically order 10% more than I need because after years of raising chickens I expect that a few won't survive. When we informed customer service on Saturday that we had 54 live chicks they generously refunded the amount for the 6 birds that died. Thank you eFowl!
