    Approximately what age would be best for processing Dark cornish? Roos and hens. I have a trio not 100 % pure they have some EE but they look just like dark cornish and I'm thinking about hatching a batch from them for meat. I hear they are tasty [​IMG]

    DC's are a little slower at growth to maturity, the quality of the meat is far superior to other breeds that you can realy wait until you feel it's time.
