    I had a few questions about meat birds.

    A.) Other then Cornish X's, what other breeds are good for meat? I.E. - Easter Eggers, Barred Rocks, Australorps?

    B.) What amount of feed would 5-7 Cornish X's go through in a week period? 25 lbs? 50 lbs?

    C.) What are good butchering ages for Cornish X's?

    D.) Good butchering age for laying types? I.E. EE's, Barred Rocks, ect?

    F.) Are hens different in meat/taste then roosters?


    Thanks for any help!
