The last thread i saw regarding the Belgian Malines (Mechels) was from 2013. Does anyone know of their status in the U.S.? I would love to get these on my gentleman's farm (i dislike the term homestead) for the meat. I currently have RIR and Barred Rocks for eggs. But I have been looking for a GREAT meat bird. Looks like Dorkings and Favorelles are my second choices but i would prefer the Mechels. Any information would be appreciated.
