Hello, new to the forum, I have been lurking for a while though. I'm pretty new to the chicken world, less than a year. I got into this for a hobby and eggs. Last spring when I ordered chicks, I was going to keep the pullets and butcher all of the roosters (heavy egg laying breeds). I was less than satisified and found out that it isn't profitable trying to feed these chickens to a butchering size. After reading about incubating, I bought an incubator and my kids and I are incubating eggs (speckled sussex rooster over buff orpington, australorp, and speckled sussex hens). This is just for fun, not meat birds although I will eat any roosters I manage to hatch. I read with interest in creating meat hybrids, and thought this would be interesting to experiment with. I realize it is next to impossible to get white cornish and people are using dark cornish. I have seen where buff cornish and white laced red cornish. Would buff cornish be a better option to get a lighter chicken? Has anyone crossed a cornish with a jersey giant? Thanks, and sorry for the long winded ramble.
