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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from High loss rate Purchased 40 chicks online, 8 died the day they arrived, 4 more died the next day. The ones that died seemed alot smaller then the ones that survived. Those that survived seem to be perfectly healthy eating,drinking and moving around fine. Never had this many die in the past, maybe 1 out of 10 if that, not sure what happened.

At what age should these get processed/butchered? also how long should they be fed chick starter food and what should they eat after the chick starter food? 

Asked by: Sindy001
Maximum growth for a broiler is between 8-10 weeks (males at the low end and females at the high end). Broiler chicks require broiler starter feed for the first four weeks of their life. The broiler starter feed should be at least 20 percent protein, preferably 23 percent protein. After four weeks, you should feed a 19 percent protein feed (broiler developer or finisher). It is also suggested to take feed away at night as broilers could develop acides disease if they overeat their body weight while growing.

How old are the chickens being shipped. In the specifications section it says baby chicks and a lot of different weeks old chickens but doesn’t give me an option to select an age. 

Asked by: Justin1279
All fowl and chicks are shipped the day they are hatched so they will be no older than 15-48 hours old upon arrival to the post office and your home. The exception would be the "Started" pullet selection which you can choose 4, 8 or 12 weeks old when shipped

How many pounds of food should be purchased for the lifespan of the broilers? 

Asked by: Sindy001
At about 8 weeks of age, a broiler chick is eating about 1/3 pound of feed each day. From the table, a broiler by its 9th week will have eaten about 6,000 grams = 13.23 pounds.
