    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.

    If you will search Malines at the top of the page, there have been several mentions of the breed in the past several weeks.
