    what are the results if you cross a broiler with.... a dark cornish or a large white rock?

    I know if you breed the dark cornish and a rock you will get a larger meat like bird. (not like a full broiler)

    But has anyone held back cornish rock or cornish roasters, restricted the feed and then breed these broiliers back to cornish or rocks??? what will you get? anything good to eat? [​IMG]

    First of all you have to get the broiler to live long enough to reach sexual maturity. And once it reaches sexual maturity, it may be too big and clunky to breed successfully.

    I'm not sure if the can reproduce, like BB turkeys, they may be too bulky to ahem... line up the parts. [​IMG]
