    Quote:She said not a fast developing bird!

    I don't know how that would work myself. I've been thinking of trying out Jersey Giant crosses myself for a BIG faster developing chicken for laying ( not fast in Cornish X) faster in as quicker laying like a Leghorn or Leghorn cross, and one that would be great as a eating bird also (extra roosters).
