Look What was in the chicken yard. - Page 3

post #21 of 22
Thread Starter 

It was a Cornish X. I processed it on Wednesday. It grew a wry neck and I had to keep it separate from the others because they would always pick on it. It would eat. stand for few second and then lay. I don't know how much longer it would have lived because of its weight. At least it had a better life then being stuck in a cage all day. I don't have a scale but it dressed out to about the size of a young turkey. I would say 9lbs maybe. huge heart and gizzard.

Yes, even on a highly controlled and restricted diet, few Cornish X have made it to the 12 month mark.  They outgrow their own organs pretty quickly.  Thank you for the update!!!
