Big Sur broilers will produce the large breast that consumers expect, and grow more slowly than conventional Cornish Cross. These chickens can be raised outside on pasture, in a controlled climate housing, or a combination of both. These birds grow to be about 90% white feathered with some red feathers. A higher yield of breast meat and better feed conversion makes this bird ideal for those of you trying to split the difference between a fast growing Cornish Cross and slow growing red broiler.
