I was told by a reliable source that a dark Cornish hen to a Buckeye roo makes for a wonderful meat bird but unfortunately the place I'm getting my birds from is out of Buckeyes for a few months. Would a Barred Rock roo be a decent replacement or a waste of time? Would it be better to do BR hens and a Dark Cornish roo?I'm not up to speed on chicken genetics but I know the barring gene from a BR could work in my favor to create a sex link but I think they'd have to be the hen? Originally Freedom Rangers were our first choice (we've done CornishX and would like something different but not too slow from hatch to plate and still a good meal) but Rangers aren't available. Has anyone done this cross? Any insight or suggestions (other than sticking with CornishX)? Thanks!
