They are both hybrids whose parenting are from industrial propriety lines. The super growing Cornish X is no longer Cornish over White Rock nor are the French Label Rouge or American Freedom Rangers comprised of pure breeds. The drive for better production leads to lines that breed true but are individual business owned; like Hy-Line white egg layers, developed and solely owned by Hy-Line industries. So Cornish X's and red meaties are hybrids, each made from two lines.
