Please Note: Cornish Roaster, Cornish Game Hens, and Jumbo Cornish X Rocks 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.
how much food do the chickens eat during there life time?
It depends on what your feeding schedule is. We do recommend limit feeding these birds since they will eat a lot if allowed to.
At what age can you cook these?
You would typically butcher between 8-12 weeks depending on which breed you receive in the package.
are the chicks vaccinated and if so for what
The chicks are not vaccinated unless you request them. We offer Marek's Disease and Coccidiosis.
What do you feed chickens that you want to butcher
We recommend feeding a broiler or meat bird feed.
Since it's fast growing is there growth hormones added
No hormones are added to help them grow quickly.
Since these are fast growers, can you tell me where to get information on feeding and what age they mature. Just anything helpful would be very appreciated. Thank-you!
We do have some information on raising the meat breeds. I will try attaching it here, otherwise we can email it to you.
