When we ordered our chicks last year, I really wanted to get some. There is just something about that stocky build that just appeals to me.
What are they like on a farm? Do they forage well? Make good mothers? Lay frequently? Do their babies sell well?
I am trying to narrow my breeds down to just a handful of specific breeds and I think these may be one I would choose. I like the whites and the darks.
Are they heavy eaters? Grow quickly to slaughter weight?
Also, are there any breeders on BYC that ship either eggs or day old chicks? When I start buying the new breeds, I would like to get good quality. Does McMurray have good quality bantam Cornish?
