I am a very happy camper. I scored 18 Cornish Rock crosses this weekend for $3 each. They were leftovers after the commercial truck came to clean out the broiler houses. They were moved to the broiler house's owners yard where his wife has fed them chicken scratch and cracked corn ever since. The houses are almost ready to clean out again, so these chickens had to go. they range in size from 10 pounds to at least 17 pounds. the two largest ones are from the previous batch, so they are closer to 28 weeks. I'll weight them on Friday when we process them. I am shocked at how healthy and fit they are. They are free ranging, chasing bugs, and do not hover around the feeder. I raised a batch of cornish rock crosses last year and at 8 weeks they could hardly walk and some could not walk at all. I am curious how these birds were raised so that they could be so healthy at this age! Hopefully they will still be tender. I'll post some photos and weights when we process them. They might be too big for my scalding pot. I am sure we will have to modify the killing cones.
