    Only DP breeds will successfully be used in raising more meat birds. Cornish x rocks and colored broilers can be done but it's not easy nor is it economical. All birds will start laying anywhere from 17-24 weeks regardless of breed.

    Read this link to help differentiate the differences in the breeds....
