I dont post much on this site, but I am constantly watching the discussions and have learned so much from all the great questions and answers everybody else post and cant thank yall enough. When you try to breed your own Cornish X's are you just concerned with the first cross (The F1s) as the goal. Or do you conentrate on breeding the first crosses and making the F2s your primary meat birds. I know I wont get the huge crosses that the hatcheries sell. (It would be great, but I dont have 40 years and millions of $s to devote to it). Anyway I guess my question is do I build my birds based on the purebreed parents or by specifically picking the first cross for traits that I want that may or may not be passed down to the next generation, because they are hybrids.
