Our Conventional Broiler is a fast growing, commercial quality meat bird. Known for rapid growth and weight gains, our bird reaches a broiler/fryer weight of 4lbs. by 5 weeks of age, or can be managed to a roaster chicken weight of 8-10 lbs. by 8 weeks. Bred for meat production, our Cornish Cross has excellent conformation; plump, tender breast meat; and good skin texture. Customers successfully grow this broiler in both a housed environment and a pasture-raised system.
This broiler chicken has an excellent feed conversion rate. A live weight of 4-5 lbs. (3.5 lbs. dressed) can be achieved on less than 2 pounds of feed per pound of meat.
Our Conventional Broiler is available as a day-old chick and can be ordered as a straight run, pullets (female) only, or cockerels (males) only.
