What success has there been with crossing Dark Cornish with Speckled Sussex?
What has happened with the other projects posted here, a year ago?
Russ- you will find that is very little, if any follow-up, on these half baked ideas about creating useful meat chickens with one cross between recognnized breeds. The internet obtained genetics knowlewdge and brilliant revelations generating therefrom seems not to be catching up with nearly 70 years of developement funded by an industry that counts for trillions of dollars.
These home brewed genetics will not produce anything close to the FCR, rate of gain, conformation or disease resistance of commercial meat chickens.
Some are happy with the results they achieve but it is a little like a campfire burned hotdog dropped in the dirt tasting better than any other you ever ate - if you cooked it yourself.
