    Just wondering if that is something I could do so I could hatch out some. Thanks!

    They are a cross between white cornish and white rocks. They are a special strain I belive though, so I don't think crossing any old cornish and rock will make broilers. If you want to raise your own there are red broilers, freedom rangers, etc which take about 10-12 weeks to get to process time, but grow slower, have less health problems, etc. Not sure if they breed true, I don't have any experience with them.
