I need some input on people that have hatched their own eggs from Cornish X Rock hens... either they be crossed or with another cornish x rock rooster. Reason why... I've seen these breeders first hand and they are massive birds. Honestly they are no different than the ones we raise to eat except for the fact they are put on a diet. Secondly the breeders are only good up until like 50 some odd weeks so they don't last very long. Genetics is complicated but not that complicated. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that a good meat bird crossed with a good meat bird... is going to produce... guess what? More meat birds.... I mean we do the same things in our backyard flocks just as the big commercial guys do in their laboratories? We breed for traits and go from there.... I'm not buying into the fact that cornish x rocks don't breed true... I think the secret is management in feeding... They may not be 100% consistent to their parents but they are going to have compact bodies for one and way more meat than any DP. I don't see what the big deal would be. Anyone try this? Do you have pictures?
