    I got this chick from McMurrays Hatchery yesterday as a day old. I got the chick for a surprise chick, can i use him to breed with my meat flock?

    Thanks,
    RIrs

    Um, is that a quail. To me it sounds like a chicken breed.

    I think your on the wrong thread. Cornish is a chicken breed.

    Yes, you can use the Cornish on your meat flock - should give you some nice meaty chicks.

    It should be meaty, but with only one problem. McMurray's offers that breed in bantam, not standard. There only standard cornish is the Dark Cornish.
    But I did have the bantam cornish and they were some nice little meat birds.

    I was just looking at McMurray's print catalog last night, (was on the website a couple of weeks ago). Whe WLR Cornish is available as a standard fowl. It's in the rare birds section, not with the others. This is in addition to the bantams.
