I have a question...... I realize a Cornish Cross is a meat bird, and most live only a few weeks before they are slaughtered for meat. I also realize that it is very difficult for these birds to live to 6 months unless they are free ranged or fed extremely little. However - it is possible. *IF* it were accomplished - I would *suppose* by their breed genetics they would lay large brown eggs. I would also *suppose* that because the female lines must produce high volumes of eggs to most economically produce chicks for sale - that even when crossed to a cornish one might expect 3 to 4 eggs a week. These are *guesses* on my part with nothing at all to substantiate it. So has anyone out there kept the hens beyond 6 months who has practical real world expereince? If so - what type of laying ability do they have? Size of eggs? Frequency of Lay? How well did they do overall in this regard?
