How big are your biggest hens and what is there general weight? Going on 6 years of owning birds now for both dual purpose use. We started primarily with 5 breeds of hatchery grown birds and escalated to privately grown breeder quality. It seems each year we experiment with a few new breeds that always look promising in photos but never live up to the hype of how great they are. I guess I keep looking for that big fat hen roaster and only a few birds actually fit that character. I have not owned Cornish x due to all the bad karma surrounding its future as the worlds meat bird. My grand father raised these birds during the depression years before commercially grown and they were good table fare and tasty! I don't want to talk much about roosters here as I have had some monster sized but never any hens that come close. If you have some hens averaging 5/6 lbs. please share what breed you are raising and your secrets!
