I want to keep the hens for eggs & use the roosters for meat. I was horrified when I found out what hatcheries do to the male chicks, plus I like how this is more self sufficient. I was wondering how various breeds stacked up in terms egg laying, taste, etc. I'm interested in helping out a rare breed if they aren't crazy expensive. I'd like to get SQ birds from a breeder, not hatchery birds. Thanks in advance!
