I have 2 cornish rocks. They are around 6 weeks or so and I planned to put them in some chicken and dumplings pretty soon. I think one is a rooster and the other a hen. Poult. Heifer. Whatever. ANYWAY, a friend wanted to know if I would keep them and raise chicks so he could have some. Well, I wouldn't mind doing that, but wondered if there might be some difficulty in doing that since they get so big so fast. Looks like one would have to put them on a special diet to keep them healthy enough to make it to breeding age. Would the big hen break the eggs? Is artificial insemination involved? Could be more trouble than it is worth to me.
