I have 12 chickens and 7 different breeds. My barred rock rooster is gigantic, the hen is also very big. The only other bird comparable to size is my buff. All birds are roughly 15 weeks, or maybe 16? I am losing count. These 2 breeds are considerably bigger so I was debating on possibly raising some for meat. Anyone ever eat those breeds? How did they turn out? I am still weighing in all the options so no final decision yet, probably wouldn't be until next spring that I began hatching some. Dorking sounds neat too.
