I used to order them form MM but I found out about Moyers in PA, they seemed to be the same quality but much cheaper. Shop around and you should be able to find a decent price, where are you located anyhow?

Some places don't call them Cornish X's. Some call them White Broilers, the one I use calls them Hubbard White Mountain Broilers, etc, but most hatcheries sell them.

Quote:The ones I've seen are- I guess I can't speak for all hatcheries. I'd say that if they call it a white broiler, it looks like the Cornish X, and they say it's ready for butcher in 8 weeks, you can be fairly sure that's what you're getting. If you're unsure, just ask them- they would be able to tell you because I'm sure they get asked that several times per day. Townline calls theirs Hubbard White Mountain Broilers, but in the listing, they say "commonly known as the Cornish Cross."

I'm ordering mine from Jmhatchery but they are freedom rangers. I guess not as dumb about free ranging as the cornish X We are getting ours this friday and they are our first also. Good luck with yours!

I get mine from Hoover's in IA. I would imagine that EVERY hatchery would have a strain of this breed if they want to survive in business.
