Here are the eggs that are available to me in my area. Which ones would be best for eggs and meat? I don't have a lot of room so I can only have about 6birds. Id like to process them when that time comes as well. Thanks for your help.
Barred Rock
Leghorn Maran/ Black Copper Mara
Red Sex links, Black Sex links
Rhode Island Reds
Black Astrolorps, Jersey Giant, Bantam X, breed with Cochin X, Old English Bantam, Sumatra X, etc. roosters
I have no clue on what to buy. Thanks in advance.

I'll probably go with BR and RIR since those are what's available. What are cornish?

Comerical birds you buy at the store are Cornish X Rocks, I don't have a pic. of one as I am just getting started in these, There is a Cornish thread on here, Take a look at them, nice meaty bird.
