I have raise thousands of Cornish X Cross broilers. I have found the best ways to raise them, the hatcheries I do well with, and the hatcheries I don't. However, my customer base is now under the impression that it is in-humane to raise these Cornish Crosses. I was wondering if anyone had any experience in Raising Delawares for meat. I am a numbers guy. Any numbers regarding feed intake, the final weight of the bird, how quickly they are raised. They are fairly good for egg production, and if the meat numbers add up I may just switch my entire operation to purebred Delawares, so I can save a few bucks and hatch my own hens. Share some numbers with me, and I'll be happy to share my numbers with you. Us local farmers have to stick together, sharing knowledge and information is hard sometimes, but it's something we all need to do. Best of luck to everyone, and I hope someone can help me!
