Cornish or similar for our sussex hens for meat birds

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi i was wanting to cross our light sussex hens with a cornish or indian game bird. I would rather a light colored chickens if possible but my main aim is to shorten the time i am growing out our sussex for home slaughter. Thanks for any thoughts

well I would suggest cornish, but why don't you get cornish cross chicks, by the time you feed the other ones event the price of buying  the chicks of CX and feed it would probably be less than feeding your cross you plan to make to butcher time

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

you can order cx chicks from just about any hatchery and you can ask that they not get vaccinated, usually they have it that if you do not have them marked they will go un vaccinated anyway, so they do not make that mistake.
