Anyone breed Cornish rocks and how heavy can they get?
I have never seen one weighed but i know they some can get so big they can hardly walk. haha
Cornish crosses are eating machines who will get up to 4 to 5 pounds in eight weeks, depending on male or female.
My Cornish-Rock hens are easily 15lbs each right now and probably larger. That's with them being mostly free ranged so they can still walk. Someone on here was trying to break the record of 20ish lbs or so with one of his roosters.
They can get _big_. You can easily dress out a Cornish-Rock and put 10lbs of meat in the freezer if you wait long enough. But the longer you wait the more expensive the meat becomes due to how much they eat.
