Cornish Roaster

The Cornish Roaster is an outstanding bird. For decades, our customers have selected these birds as an ideal as a fryer (when butchered young), roaster or capon.

The Cornish Roaster takes about 2 weeks longer to mature than the Jumbo Cornish X Rock, but still has all of the same qualities: large breast and thighs, yellow skin, and is easy to dress. Because of it’s slower growth, many of the potential leg problems are often avoided. This bird is more active than our Cornish X Rock and has a good feed conversion rate.
