Has anyone else raised the cornish slow broilers? (Privett Hatchery) I am really happy with them. Yes, they are slower than the regular CX, but much faster than a DP. They are mostly active (free ranged part of the day/tractored also) and nicely docile. They lie down at times, but not like I've seen CX do. They also perch on the lower perches without any problem. I have four roos, 4 hens. Some of them have really nice conformation and are really pretty to look at. Next week the six largest are going for processing (at $5 each - I can't see doing it myself) I'm getting attached to the little buggers though. They have great personalities. I have one I call Cartman - he's huge and very handsome with a long tail. He's moves the slowest and definitely needs to get processed, but I will miss him. I keep them all together - I have the CSB and Buff Orps for meaties, and buff brahmas plus one SLW as my egg birds. We had a skunk get into the tractor, so I started keeping them in the coop with the "eggs" at night. Now they are a little big for the tractor, so they all stay together in the coop/yard when I'm not home. WHen I'm home, they range the big yard. I've thought about keeping one of the smaller, more "normal chicken-like" roos since I don't have a rooster and they are good caretakers for the hens. Has anyone ever kept a CSB and had it live very long? One of the little hens thinks she should be kept also. She's very sweet and she hangs out with the egg birds. I like her better than the BOs - a few of which I'd intended to keep as layers. She's more personable, but still quite "chickeney" Anyway, I'd love to hear what other folks think.
