    Cornish x is very specialized I don't think any of the backyards have them. Some are experimenting with keeping and hatching .

    You might get a bite with the freedom ranger.

    Freedom Ranger would be fine or any other fast growing meat bird that can be processed in 6-8 weeks

    any bird can be just about any age. However only cornish cross will give a 5 pound dressed bird in 8 weeks

    freedom rangers take 10-12 weeks or more depending on which post you believe or feed you offer.

    6-8 is cornish cross only unless you are looking for a very small dressed bird
