Jumbo Cornish Cross chickens, also known as Cornish Rock chickens, are the ideal meat production chicken. A mix of the commercial Cornish chicken and the White Rock chicken, this breed has been used almost exclusively for meat production for the last 50 years. Its quick growth rate, large breasts and large thighs make it the best chicken type for meat production. Ordering 15 Jumbo Cornish Cross chickens will allow you to test meat production chickens at your small farm or back yard flock. Because of their amazingly quick growth rate, Jumbo Cornish Cross chickens should not be kept as pets, as they suffer from balance and movement issues past 10 weeks of age.
Provide full feed the first 5 days, then feed 12 hours on and 12 hours off.
