Cornish cross chickens are the standard meat chicken for the American market. Joe Salatin uses them exclusively in his pastured poultry operation, and most of the small farmers use them as well. All of the pictures for this entry are chicks that are IDENTICAL in age, and they're used to illustrate the amazing growth of these chicks. The chick on the left is a heritage breed chicken, the buff orpington . The one on the right is the cornish cross. The cornish cross goes from hatch to slaughter weight in 6 to 8 weeks.

Others, like straw, which is messy and difficult to fully sterilize, are more suited to fruiting and less good for production of spawn.
