Jumbo Cornish Cross chickens are a fast growing chicken developed for commercial meat production. They have the potential to reach 5 to 6 pounds (dressed weight) in as little as 49 to 56 days. Known for their excellent feed efficiency, each broiler requires only 12 to 14 pounds of feed until they are 49 to 56 days old to achieve projected results. It is recommended this breed NOT be kept as a pet, as its large size can cause health issues for the bird past 10 weeks of age.
Provide full feed the first 5 days, then feed 12 hours on and 12 hours off.
