NOT from experience...but from reading other's experiences: Yes, but a shorter life than most chickens. Many find them exceedingly sweet birds. I don't think limiting their food would be best, but giving them room to roam and act like "real chickens" would be nice. I've read that some have cornish that are very typical to layers in their activity levels. But they never live long, so be prepared for that. The longest I've heard of is about 2 years, although most never make it to a year.

I have a rooster and a hen that are almost a year old. The rooster does everthing the other roosters do but
is a lover not a fighter. The hen lays eggs about every other day. The are very sweet and very big. They do not over eat as they did
when they were younger.
