These Jumbo Cornish Cross Giants have been amazing to have raised and I have fallen in love with this breed. Well, we need to go about the culling this week more then likely tomorrow so I thought I would share some of their beauty with you. If you are interested in purchasing Jumbo Cornish Cross Chickens you’ll find information here:
Our Cornish Cross Giants are all very sweet. They are very tame and will step on your feet to get to the feed tray. They are scared of everything and they don’t run as they are too large but they do a flying waddle run when frightened or scared (mostly by other normal chickens who like to tease them!).
They seem to stare at things just a bit longer, especially if it appears to confuse them. Such as a fence, the chickens will inspect it for a while, then awhile longer, then slowly look at the ground then back at the fence. I am not going to give them a prize for cunning or intellect, for cuteness and domesticity a 10+.
The fence is a perpetual novelty, as is everything else in their world. It’s like watching an animal who is trying really hard to get their brain to tick but it just doesn’t … quite.. get…there.. The “normal” chickens especially some of our wild girls who are extremely clever like to tease and chase our Jumbo’s around. I do feel sorry for them for that, when they try to run it’s like watching a bad b movie..
These broilers have been fed organic all the way, they are free range also but don’t really peck around a lot. I am not going to be surprised if a few of the birds are averaging around 11 pounds. We will weight them when the time is right.
The photo on the left you can see one of our wild normal gals standing next to WANDA Crispy! Whew look at the size of it by golly!
We plan on raising more of these delightful birds and enjoying them fly wobble running around the farm!
