    Hello everyone I'm new to the site and somewhat new to raising birds. I have 8 differs breeds of chickens and Bob white quail. My main reason for this thread is because I want to learn how to raise meat birds. Not jumbo rock x birds but I want to breed my own hybrids with Cornish chickens but I cant find any. I got a small dark Cornish rooster from a friend but he is too small to breed with my barred rock or my giant blacks. So my question is where can I get a real Cornish chicken and has anyone else been successful crossing birds for meat?
