I always hear that Cornish X's can not reach breeding age. Well fortunately for Big Bertha, here they can. She was hatched on June 28th and started laying at 18 weeks old. She now lays regularly 4-5 days a week. Also gives us the biggest egg. We average 20 eggs a day right now, as most are just starting up - but the biggest egg in 20 is impressive to me. She is also competing against the Red Sex Links, so it is no easy feat to give the biggest egg! Here she is laying her egg this morning. Here it is next to a golf ball and a medium egg. We raised them differently than 99% of the CX out there, so she is able to reach this milestone. I realize that she will not breed true, but we are going to test breed her with a heritage Silver Pencilled Rock cock. He is the largest and fastest grower we have that is heritage.
