    Interested in getting meat birds and Mcmurrays seems to have a good deal. Know of any others or have feedback on these? Good or bad?

    When all is said and done, those will be the most expensive Mc Nuggets at freezer camp.

    Try Welp. You will most likely be happier if you look to raise a meat bird.

    So I checked out Welp... What is the difference between their Cornish Rocks and Mcmurrays?

    Between the Cornish X's-nothing, except for price; Welp is much cheaper. The BBQ specials are light breed roos-like a leghorn. They will take a looong time to get big enough to eat. The cornish take about 6-8 weeks. There are a bunch of threads to really walk you through it.

    The BBQ special is the cornish rock. Thats what McMurrays is advertising anyways, and the price is pretty much the same
