Cornish Roaster

The Cornish Roaster is an outstanding bird. For decades, our customers have selected these birds as an ideal as a fryer (when butchered young), roaster or capon. 

The Cornish Roaster takes about 2 weeks longer to mature than the Jumbo Cornish X Rock, but still has all of the same qualities: large breast and thighs, yellow skin, and is easy to dress. Because of it's slower growth, many of the potential leg problems are often avoided. This bird is more active than our Cornish X Rock and has a good feed conversion rate. 

Sold as Straight Run only, we recommend processing the pullets as fryers and the males as roasters. Fryers can reach a dressed weight of 3-4 lbs. in 8 to 9 weeks, and the roasters will reach a dressed weight of 8-9 lbs. at 12 weeks. 

Please Note: Cornish Roaster 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. Also note that they are not recommended at altitudes above 5000 feet.
