Our Cornish X hit butcher weight later than others because we do allow them to forage and free range. Butcher weight is usually around 10-12 weeks. These birds are ready for dinner. We also offer Meat Pen services if you are competing in 4-H or FFA. Please contact us for more info.
Cornish X, or broilers, bred and raised specifically for meat production. They are a hybrid of the egg-laying chickens selected for extremely fast muscle growth. Typical broilers have white feathers and yellowish skin. Most commercial broilers reach slaughter-weight at between five and seven weeks of age. Due to intensive selection for rapid early growth and the husbandry used to sustain this, broilers are not genetically modified (GMO) just selectively bred, contrary to popular belief.
