    I have an order in but I am looking for some chickens that have meaty breast!!!

    I just processed cornish
    I just ordered some red broilers

    but,

    I would like to add a dual purpose SR (with a meaty or large breast meat) I will also be ordering dark cornish to mate with it later!

    I am considering: SS, WR, Light Brahmas, SF

    Good luck, but you'll be hard pressed to get a double breasted bird off of any "dual" bird. Have fun doing your own breedings! I'll get into that some day when I have more time to be near my flock.

    Are there birds with less white and more dark?

    Pheasants!

    (Or Guineas, if you actually want a carcass that is chicken sized [​IMG] )

    Perhaps you can go with your normal birds and supplement their food with crushed up protein bars and see about getting a tiny little bow flex home gym thing to put in the coop with them?

    Guinea tastes better than chicken. It is succulent and elegant dining when properly roasted. [​IMG]

    Goose is all dark meat - rich like beef.
