I raise chickens. Not a whole lot but enough I don't have to buy chicken or eggs anymore. We bought some chicks from the chicken farmer down the road specifically for meat. A few of them have made it for about a year now. Here's what's curious... They look like Cornish hens. But each one has grown to 16 pounds or more. The hens have never laid an egg. I read they won't very often but they should lay a few in a year at least. Is this typical for any breed of chicken, Or am I eating genetically modified chickens?
