A Gardenagerie project comparing Hybrid Commercial meat chickens to standard breeds. We're looking at cost, efficiency, and at how we feel about raising them. This is a progress report, ten weeks into the project.
A side by side comparison following a season of raising chickens from hatchlings to slaughter, looking at the pros and cons of raising standard breed chickens for meat, versus raising Cornish Cross Hybrids like the commercial growers do. I was ideologically against the hybrids, but the experience took a surprising turn.
