I've got a couple of crosses I should be able to get going in February. I'm going to try the broiler rooster over a Cornish hen and vice versa.I've also got some Barred Rocks and Dorkings that will get thrown into the mix.This year is going to be about building isolation pens and breeding
I'm curious, why the barred rock? I think I understand the other crosses. Nice meat birds for sure. Cornish rooster over dorking hen used to be the preferred meat bird in England, so that should work nicely. I think dorkings still consistently win taste tests.
I'm going to find some hatching eggs and hatch a few more dark cornish. I'd like to keep a pure line going of that breed.
