So I got to thinking... what if you put a Jersey Giant over a White Rock... As opposed to Cornish over a Rock... Cornish, a game bird now meat, top out at 8lbs... Jerseys, a DP formerly meat, top out at 10lbs. So, WHY aren't JG's the Cross of choice for a fast growing big meatie? Boulders seem like a good idea... JG's are the #1 choice, supposedly, for capons... Figure there has to be a reason that they aren't being used for Cross Meaties Do they not grow quite as fast as CX? Feed conversion not as good? More of the heart/leg/etc problems than CX get? Both have yellow skin, but the JGs have dark shanks could that be it? Just a nosey posey and had to ask.
