Cornish Cross Boiler chickens are sometimes nicknamed Cornish Giants because of the rapid growth and weight gains. Developed by mating a Cornish game hen and a Barred Rock. This is the bird that changed American eating habits. Before Cornish Cross Broilers were developed, a chicken dinner was a rare treat reserved for special occasions. Before the Cornish Cross era chickens grew slowly while eating plenty of feed. Their meat was tasty but sparse. The Cornish Cross made broiler production efficient, and today it’s often the most inexpensive meat the grocery store sells. Cornish Cross Broilers require special feeding and care but grow astonishingly fast. These birds can be grown to a live weight of 6 -12 lbs. Cornish Cross Broilers are the best choice for a person who wants to quickly produce delicious meat. Cornish Broilers have excellent conformation: plump, tender breast meat and good skin texture.
