    - mine are about 9 months now- and breeding- these are crossbred for meat production from 2 different breeds right? Just curious since ive never raised any this long to find out- I have eggs suppose to hatch tomorrow off of this cross. Will they still grow fast? and be white?

    Yep This spring I plan on raising some CX pullets to and breed them with heritage breed roos like Sussex and Wyandottes to make meat birds that are more fit for farm life. I have dont it before and there are others doing it as well if you look throught the meat birds section. Brunty Farms has crossed a Buckeye roo on CX hens and there is another member that crossed an Ameraucana roo with CX hens.
