Cornish

The world most popular chicken

Popular but RaRe?

How can the most popular chicken be rare? Most will confuse the White Cornish X with what we carry, which is White Standard Cornish. The Cornish X is your supermarket chicken that is cross bred to grow fast. Chicks can be purchased through hatcheries and grown for your own meat. However, you cannot breed those birds as they usually will die before they can reproduce. The Birds we carry are the Original Cornish. Pure Standard Bred. It is difficult to obtain the pure White Cornish.
Standard Cornish which are also called Indian Game Fowl are slow to grow and can produce wonderful cornish 1lb game hens for your freezer.  This is valuable for those  who want tender breasty meat,  but do not want to grow them all summer long. For larger birds, this will take your typical 5 to 6 months of growing , the same as all heritage breeds. The Cornish is a game breed that produces ample amount of breast meat. Very dense chicken that appears small but is quite heavy and has very little down. So appearances are not what they seem with this bird. An excellent choice for those wanted to grow a more natural bird without the health issues. They love to forage and remain similar in behaviour to other heritage breeds. The birds are flighty and don't care much for people until they reach laying age. They do not make the best pets and are strictly best kept for meat purposes.

This is a newer breed on the farm. It has been 2 years of breeding and culling prior to the release through our farm. The whites have been bred over the years by many breeders by adding in a variety of Cornish blood to keep genetics fresh. Therefor other Cornish colors have been added into the whites. You may see odd black feathers or some with red down. These are pure birds with other cornish genes. Vitality in this breed is important to maintain for good fertility.
