We ended up with meat birds last year by accident. I was not so sure at first when I found out what they were cornish x's, mainly because I knew nothing about them. I did my research and was super excited come processing time. Processing time came and went, and do I dare say that I had fun doing it??!! I surely wanted to do more this year. I bought 27 of them yesterday, and all have been sold when fully grown. I would like to do between 200-300, in batches....but first I need to wait for the snow to melt, and build some extra living spaces!
