First Run of Cornish Cross Meat Birds and Super Excited! - Page 494
Roosters from all of these breeds will be maintained for the breeding purposes until I find a cross I like. I won't be keeping any of the slow broiler rooster s back for breeding.

I was talking to a CL breeder friend who also lives in Texas, and she thinks that the over big and floppy combs can develop in CLs if it's really really hot during their chick-hood/teen-hood comb development. (It can be a problem for Texas folks especially for the cockerels, in whom the floppy big combs are more of a problem for those who show, apparently). The other two pullets I have (which are also "more correct", for whatever that's worth) have smaller combs, though also a bit floppy - Paula's is totally out of control!!!! But then again, she's never been one for following rules. She actually tried to crow at 5 weeks.
