    This may be a dumb answer, BUT cornish game hen is Chicken. If you read the description from most of the sellers of Cornish rocks.

    McMurrey says: Have you ever admired the Cornish Game Hens for sale in the supermarket? Have you ever wondered if you could grow them yourself? Now you can! Murray McMurray Hatchery can supply you with baby chicks from the broiler industry’s top breeders. We sex these Jumbo Cornish X Rocks and provide you with the pullets to use for your Cornish Game Hens. BUTCHER AT 2-21/2 POUNDS LIVE WEIGHT and you will be eating the most delicious chicken in your life and you grew it yourself!

    Quote:"Cornish Game Hens," as they are labeled in stores, are actually commercially bred cornish x that were processed around the age of 4 weeks old. So.. yeah, they'll taste like chicken 'cause they are chickens. [​IMG]

    To me game hens don't dry out as easily as big chickens do. They are moister little chickens. We had them last night!
