(Where did you come by your cornish)

 

I got my Cornish from from an old guy selling out. They are really nice bantams as far as the Cornish bantams go. The old guy said he had them for years. They are pretty plump Cornish. Great eating. Also got some really pretty Barred Rock Bantams. They got crossed once and made a few really good dinner birds.

I recently got the Cornish bantam assortment from Ideal, 25 birds at just over $1 each. They all made the trip ok and seem healthy. There seems to be 3 maybe 4 color variations in the group. We will see how they turn out.

They don't eat much more. If you free range you can easily limit their food by just putting some food in the pen an hour before they roost. Give them enough to last until you let them out in the morning. The Cornish rocks (Tyson Chickens) eat ALOT and will cripple them selves if you let them. The Amish down the road feed them a handful in the morning and evening and they develop fully and do not cripple. But the dark or white laced reds develop and eat just fine with full feed or free range.

Howdy to all. Dark Cornish LF,  Cornish bantams, a few guineas and whatever else the coons didn't eat. Plus my quarter horses, goats and Zebu. Have a DELIGHTFUL day.

       Every day above ground is a good day. Some people didn't get that privilege this morning.

I've. Been thinking real hard on it. If I KNEW I would get some WHITE ones I'd. Do it in a heartbeat

I'm partial to white birds. They look so clean and stand out

Has anyone had a bantam Cornish rooster mate with a Large Fowl hen like maybe a RIR or Barred Rock, and if so, what where the offspring like as far as size and body build?  If not, does anyone know what will result from a mating of a bantam rooster to a LF hen?
