My husband finally killed the third of our four CornishxRocks two days ago. I wrapped it in foil and baked it in the oven for 1 1/2 and boy was it GOOD!!! The other two didn't turn out but this one was so good I will have to raise up some more (probably White Rocks though this time...) ANYWAY... my husband told me this morning that he was talking to a lady at Ingles in the deli, and told her that we raised/ate our own chicken last night and it weighed nearly 5 lbs (I weighed it before I put it in the oven.. was curious.. it was a BIG chicken!) and she replied "Wow! I didn't even know chickens could get that big. It must have had a lot of hormones!" My husband did inform her that it did NOT have any hormones. She couldn't believe it!
