3 chickens, silkies,cross,cornishes article The Cornish cross is a popular breed for chickens, with a very short life span, and the breed is so popular it has its own tagline: “the cross between silkies and cross chickens.”
Cornish cross chicken breeder Michael Sacks has been breeding the breed since 2004, and says the breed has a reputation for being a “loveable, loving breed.”
The breed’s popularity has come from its “unrivaled breeding” ability.
“Cornish Cross breeders love their birds and want to be part of the breed,” he told Sport Italia.
“We all love our chickens, but we don’t like the whole “cross chicken” concept.”
Sacks said the breed was created to “look like a cross of silkies with cross chickens”.
“It is a cross between two cross breeds: a silky cross and a cross cross chicken, which is also called silkycross,” he said.
“I don’t know why people want to call it a cross, but I think it is.”
When asked about the popularity of the chicken breed, Sacks said: “The fact is, most people want a good-looking chicken with a nice colour and good looking legs, and a good appearance.”
“We sell a lot of chicken that has no legs, so we have a lot.
But we sell a few chickens that have legs.
The problem is that the breed isn’t popular.”
He said the Cornishes have “a very low life expectancy,” and said the chicken is also an “unrecognisable breed” to people who are unfamiliar with the breed.
Sacking said the breeding process was “not for everybody,” and that the breeder’s goal was to create “a wonderful breed.”
There are currently three Cornish crosses in the world: one of them being the CornISH breed.
The other two are the CornISLE and CornISC.
