JUMBO Cornish Cross Broiler
Jumbo Cornish Cross Broilers have exceptional feed conversion and growth rate. This chicken will produce the best uniformity for processing with lean, tender breast meat. Typically this bird is processed at 7 weeks, but many farmers choose to process at an earlier age and sell them as Cornish game hens. Some customers will demand large roasters and this can be accomplished by raising the birds to 10 weeks or older. Due to the tremendous amount of meat that can be economically produced by this bird, many pasture based farm systems use this chicken.
The Jumbo Cornish Cross is valued for its rapid growth, great feed efficiency, tender meat, and broad breasts. The genetic traits of this bird have been in development and refined over many years to become the broiler breed of choice for commercial growers. These chickens will grow uniformly with minimal difference in weight. This is the standard chicken grown indoors on litter, but is also the most common variety for pasture and free range type systems.
