    Don't know where to pick up hybrid broilers.
    Ixworth is supposed to be a fast-maturing well-fleshed bird if you're looking for purebreds.
    For crosses, Indian game crosses with sussex, australorp, or dorking are meant to be quite good. Most hybrid broilers have indian game (cornish) in their makeup, its where the larger breast meat comes from. Not sure if it matters if the IG is the cock or the hen in this cross though.
