Hi, Last year I got real lazy and never butchered 4 of my Cornish Crosses and as it turns out they make great garden tillers. Except that I had a hawk picking them off one by one so I moved the last one back to the orchard which they were protected by the geese before. So I have one lone cornish cross left and she is over a year old. I am just curious how long they live usually? I don't feed her or anything so I am just curious. She probably is able to get the geese left overs sometimes though. As long as she doesn't cause problems she can stay as long as she likes since she doesn't cost me a dime. She's never laid an egg as far as I know. So what is your longest lived Cornish Cross? Has anyone else "kept" them like this?
