Hi everyone! This spring I'm going to be experimenting with Dorkings, White Rocks, and Delawares in search of a good dual-purpose bird for us. I ordered them from Meyer Hatchery. I'd really like to throw standard Cornish into this mix, but not sure it would work. Questions: 1) I've read that standard Cornish are somewhat hard to handle and don't mix well with other breeds. Is this correct? Would that be true if I raised them from chicks with the above breeds? 2) Would the dark cornish from Meyer hatchery work to get a general idea of their meat qualities? I know I could get breeder quality, but hatchery birds fit my financial, time, and space restraints for this experiment. 3) I'd rather get white cornish - I love the look! Any breeders around the Northwest Indiana area? Do any hatcheries sell them? Thanks!
