    I have raised Cornish Giants for years. I have much experience and perhaps could help you if you like or are still interested? I very, very rarely have leg problems anymore with my Giants.

    This year we actually hatched our own eggs. We took eggs from our red rock cross layers that were fertilized by our rooster Mr. Freckles (a German heritage breed). We incubated and hatched close to forty chicks and harvested the males as meat birds.

    Raising these birds was hassle free compared to the Cornish Giants, but you definitely do not get the same amount of meat! We are thinking of trying Cornish Giants again, and would certainly welcome any advice! What do you do to keep them active and healthy?

    Some of the advice we have heard from friends is to keep their food outside so that they have a reason to move around. We would also keep them separate from the rest of the flock I think.

    We also have two turkeys that we are raising now, and we are going to see how they turn out.

    My family raised Cornish Giants when I was growing up in Canada, and now that I have a farm in Michigan nobody seems to know what Cornish Giants are. I am not happy with the Cornish crosses that are widely available since they don’t free range at all, or if they do, they get too much excercise or something because it takes an extra 2 weeks to get them to the weight they need to be for butchering. Our old cornish giants were all over our property (several acres) and were the fattest, yummiest birds. I would like to find out where to buy Cornish Giants! Anyone out there know where I can get them?
