Meat birds for breeding

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I want to raise meat birds. Especially the Cornish Cross/broilers, however I have no idea if this is possible since you cant cross 2 broilers and get a true broiler chicken. And suggestions on what chicken I could breed together? Any help would be great! :) Thanks

Many people have tried, and failed, to figure out what exactly goes into the creation of the Cornish Cross. It is a carefully guarded industry secret. It's not a simple, cross breed A with breed B, type of hybrid.

Red Ranger works best. Makes nice meaty bird.
