My wife and i are going to be running Cornish X all year to fill our freezer and keep our whole family stocked. My ultimate goal is i want to be doing this with our own birds we hatch instead of shipping them in every time. I understand i will never get to where the broiler is today but i was wondering if i can get myself sustainable. I have been mulling over the idea of crossing Plymouth rock with a giant white cochin, giant buff cochin, or buff orp. My reasoning is to take the rapid growth of a Plymouth rock and mix it with a thick meaty bird. Let me know your thoughts or suggestions to accomplish what I want. This year will probably be mainly Cornish X just to get a jump starton the freezer. Thank you in advance.
