I'm thinking of starting a project alongside my white Bresse. Specifically for meat. I ordered some Cornish hatching eggs with the plan to eventually put one of my Bresse cockerels over a Dark Cornish. My intention is to combine the greater meatiness and weight of the Cornish with the superior taste of the Bresse. What I'm interested in finding out is if anyone else is doing this? Is it better to put a Cornish cock over a Bresse hen or does it make a difference. My concern is that I hear Cornish have issues with breeding and a Cornish roo would have problems mounting a Bresse hen? Thus my solution of putting the Bresse cockerel over the Cornish hen. My purpose is to produce a healthier breed w/ superior taste and slaughter weight. I am also looking for a shorter grow out time. What do folks think! P.S. I should clarify that I plan to use my black Bresse birds because they really are rather lightweight but supposedly are even richer tasting than the white Bresse.
