White Cornish Cross Broilers are among the fastest growing meat type chicken you can buy. Chicks will reach market weight at just 6 weeks of age. They were developed for the commercial meat chicken market and have been used for the past fifty years to produce the chicken found in your local grocery store. They grow so fast that their legs may give out from their weight and it is not recommended that they be kept for breeding. You can take away the feed at night and restrict the feed intake to slow the growth of the chicken. This will allow the bones and tendons to catch up with the rapid growth.
We use the Cobb 500 and Ross 308 strains of Cornish Cross.
