Murray McMurray Hatchery can supply you with baby chicks from the broiler industry’s top breeders. We sex these Jumbo Cornish X Rocks and provide you with the pullets to use for your Cornish Game Hens. BUTCHER AT 2-21/2 POUNDS LIVE WEIGHT and you will be eating the most delicious chicken in your life and you grew it yourself!

Please Note: Cornish Game Hens are hybrids. Therefore we do not recommend breeding, they will not produce the same high quality in the next generation and due to the extreme rate of growth they will be too large at time of sexual maturity to breed successfully.
As a reminder, to help ensure a safe arrival to you, the minimum number of chicks for each order prior to April 1st is 25. On and after April 1st, the minimum number of chicks required is 15. You can mix and match any type of baby chick in your order to reach the applicable chick minimum order. If ordering any bantams, we require a minimum of 15 bantams per order.

Customer Product Reviews
Thank you Murray McMurray for my wonderful batch of 25 cornish game hens! I cannot wait for those cute little puff balls to get to two pounds! I hope they are as delicious as you described! Thanks again! I will continue to purchase from you since this being my first purchase everyone was wonderful, nice and knowledgeable!
These were wonder birds! Easy to raise and great tasting. I did find that the recommended butcher size(2-2.5lbs) was too large for what my customers wanted. Since we wanted an 8-12oz finished bird, we butcher them when they are 1.4-1.9lbs. McMurray Hatchery is the best for quality & customer service that we have found.
Just received our fist shipment of Cornish Game Hens. All came in healthy and nicely shipped. This was our first try at meat birds and the advice and instructions we recieved by one of McMurrays employees on the correct way to feed the birds and raise them was great. Thanks Again
