    Has anyone ordered these birds from Myers Poultry Farm? And how did they dress as far as yield?

    Go with the one in Ohio.... the one in Penn is just a middle person who brokers them.

    I have raised birds from meyer hatchery in OH and did not like their cornish product. They took a lot longer to finish out then what i expected. I'm going to try some from Myers Poultry in PA, I had a few people tell me that these are exellent birds and have had great luck with them.

    hmm. . . seems like you answered your own question. I would seriously consider what Brunty has to say, I think he probably raises more CX than all of us put together; I have found his well experienced input quite valuable.

    McMuarry hatchery. I raised 25 and they took 5 weeks to fill out to 5-8 pound birds.

    Commercial growers don't even get 5-8 pound birds in 5 weeks. [​IMG]
