I've read how gentle and sweet the LF are. How do the bantams stack up in the dispositon department? It has been my experience that bantams and LF of the same breed can be worlds apart in temperament.
Tim63's last post helped answer my next question but I'm interested in how fast and well the bantams flesh out. A large bantam is a perfect eating size bird for me.
If I were choosing a bantam for eating, it would be cornish for sure. The Brahma bantams just don't get real meaty very early. We do eat cull Brahma bantam cockerels, they just don't compare to the bantam cornish though . I know this is the"Brahma" thread.
Some of my young males can be a bit truculent, but usually outgrow it pretty quickly or get eaten.
