Cornish Cross Broilers

Starting at: $3.02
First avail: Jun 15, 2021

This bird single-handedly changed American eating habits. Before Cornish Cross Broilers were developed, a chicken dinner was a rare treat reserved for special occasions. Pre-Cornish Cross era chickens grew slowly while eating plenty of feed. Their meat was tasty but sparse. {{br}}The Cornish Cross made broiler production efficient, and today it’s often the most inexpensive meat the grocery store sells. Cornish Cross Broilers require special feeding and care but grow astonishingly fast. They weigh nearly six pounds when only six weeks old by efficiently converting feed into flesh. Cornish Cross Broilers are the best choice for a person who wants to quickly produce delicious meat and has no plan to save hens for egg production. {{br}}MATURE WT: MALE 9-11 LBS. FEMALE 8-9 LBS. {{br}} Please call for pricing for orders of 200+ birds!
