Lavern and Shirley--what kind of cornish were they? Were they actually cornish crosses? As I remember the cornish cross is cornish x rock though I don't know for sure, I'm thinking the white rocks.
I was talking with Walt about the cornish as a possible breed, he said "They are pretty slow lumbering good natured birds for the most part..." He was specifically referring to his line of cornish. They are BIG birds though.
Yes, these are Cornish Rocks. They were terribly obese almost and very sweet but dullards. I don't want that foggy vacancy in my birds, so I'm waiting to decide on the crosses. I might use a couple of them who show promise. FAST growth though. Sheesh!!
I've considered adding in the Dark Cornish from a different line, too- but I want to find the right line with good ranging abilities and acute awareness.
