Cornish Roaster

1989 was the first year that we were able to acquire the breeding stock for this outstanding bird. It is 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 it grows slower, many of the potential leg problems are often eliminated. This bird is more active than our Cornish X Rock and has a fine feed conversion rate. We sell them in straight run only and recommend that you butcher the pullets as fryers and save 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 making them a mouth watering sight on Mom's kitchen table. If this is what you’re looking for, give our Cornish Roaster a try, we’re sure you will be happy.

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.
