    good question, I hope you get some people that have raised different kinds for a comparison. I have only done cornish x for meat. would like to try a more traditional? breed. maybe Jersey giants? would like some idea on weather other breeds are as tender.The cornish x were very good and tender

    I like the Cornish Cross for chickens and the Pekin for ducks. Both have fast growth and excellent feed conversion. They put meat on the table for less cost per pound.
