Item Information

This is the bird that single-handedly changed American eating habits. Before Cornish Cross Broilers were developed, a chicken dinner was a rare treat reserved for special occasions. Pre-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. They weigh nearly six pounds when only six weeks old by efficiently converting feed into flesh. Cornish Cross Broilers are the best choice for a person who wants to quickly produce delicious meat and has no plan to save hens for egg production.

Are these cold hardy birds? If so up to what temperature can they withstand the cold before needing a heat lamp?

Asked by: Anonymous135
Broilers are cold hardy but do not stand direct cold, windy weather without some shelter especially early on. A heat lamp should be on them at least 90-95 degrees until they feather and after never less than 70 degrees.

Vaccinated for mareks (sp)?

Asked by: Trace1
Broilers are not vaccinated for mareks as generally they are processed before mareks would occur in poultry

Can I raise these with my red star layers?

Asked by: New to meat birds
Yes, you may raise Broilers with layers but realize you will want to feed them higher protein feed. Layers can manage the higher protein overall. Then, when the broilers are processed and layers ready to lay you can convert to layer feed for them.
