    so last spring we bought some Cornish. x from our local tractor supply store. we slaughtered 2 and they were amazing, however due to a small freezer and summer vacation we still had 3 pullets and one roo and they are BIG. The weekend we were putting the roo on the chopping block we found an egg, then three more and just knew it wasn't our layers they are locked up, whilst the Cornish x were free. we decided to lock the girls with the roo for a few days then changed him with our rir roo for a few. long story short I have 10. Cornish x eggs and 3 rir eggs in the incubator. Here's to hoping.
