I tried the whole Cornish rock x thing and I don't care for it, I ordered barred rocks and dark Cornish to breed. I also have some new Hampshire reds that I here make a good meat bird when mixed with barred rocks. have any of you had good results with raising meat birds? I do not have to get a giant ball of meat after 8 weeks, but a good size chicken at 12-14 wks would be fine.
