I was surfing the web and came across a site by Timothy Shell that discussed an alternative to Cornish Rock meat birds that he has developed -"Improved Corndel Cross", and the "Improved Pastured Peeper". I was wondering if anyone had any experience with these birds. This is a quote from his site - http://www.apppa.org/Raising Your Own Meat Flock.doc The Improved Corndel Cross is a Cornish Rock x Delaware cross, a broiler that grows out in 9 weeks to a 4lb. avg. dress wt., a 6 lb. dress wt. in 12 weeks and up to 8lb. in 15 weeks. The Improved Pastured Peeper is a standardized, commercial, Cornish Rock Cross, growing to 4lb. in 8 weeks, 6lb. in 10 weeks, and up to 8lb.in 12 weeks."
