I was out and about yesterday. At one of my stops, there was a horse trailor with chicken noises coming out of it. I couldn't resist a peek at what might be making the clucking sounds. Around the back of the trailor and peering in the crack in the tailgate.... I've never seen cornishx meaties before, but these had to be them! There were about 20 birds.... complete with feeders and waterers. Baby Hueys... sparsely feathered. Most laying down but a few laboring to walk around... now I see why some folks call them frankenbirds! I was both amazed and taken aback at the same time. So plumped up they had difficulty handling their own weight but at the same time curious and bright eyed.... I had been toying with the idea of getting some meaties for the freezer next spring.... Hmmm.... thinking maybe not now. I see broilers advertised.... anyone who has raised both? How do the two compare to each other? If cornishx are allowed to run about a bit, do they experience that need to lay down all the time? I guess I'm just unsettled is all.... any opinions from all you wonderful BYC folks?
