    I would like to buy some cornish x for meat birds and would like to try hatching my own, but dont they get so fat they can hardly walk long before they are old enough to lay an egg? Thanks

    Good luck in finding the cornish cross eggs! The birds you buy will not breed true. Go tho the meat bird section and ask Greyfields he's there most of the time and he will put in the right direction. [​IMG]
