So after searching the postings here I am more confused then when I started so thought I would pose the question and see the response I get. Like the title says what would be the best chicken to raise for meat birds and have a majority of dark meat? I know that all chickens will have some white meat but both me and the wife prefer dark over white meat and would like to raise birds for that purpose. We tried cornish rocks last year and neither of us cared for them. Haven't tried rangers yet but they sound about the same as the cornish. I was thinking something along the lines of a buckeye or something similiar. Good choice? Bad choice? I realize that I may have to get something that takes a little longer to develope than a common meat bird but that's okay just want to make a good choice here.
