This is being discussed in another thread, but I thought it deserved a thread of its own... I know there is a white variant of the Cornish breed. None of the hatcheries seem to sell them though, other than the bantam variety that McMurray offers. It seems as though a White Cornish would be an excellent alternative meat bird for those who would rather avoid the complexities of raising Cornish X Rocks. Does anyone know more about the White Cornish, where one might buy some, and why they are not common??? My copy of "Storey's Illustrated Guide to Poultry Breeds" shows a White Cornish hen and rooster in their section devoted to the Cornish breed.
