    I was looking to buy some jumbo cornish x's chicks or hatching eggs from an individual instead of a hatchery. Does any of you fine folk have any?

    You probably won't find any small breeders with jumbo cornish X's.

    Each hatchery has worked long and hard to develop the breeding flocks they use to produce their cornish X. Their cornish and rock parents are produced and bred for particular traits that combine to make the jumbos.

    Even if you had a flock of cornish and white rocks and bred them, you wouldn't end up with a jumbo cornish X.

    Your best bet is to order from a hatchery if you want the jumbos.
