A couple years ago I got Red Rangers, Dixie Rainbows, and Delawares from S & G Poultry. I wasn't pleased with the way they turned out... I was hoping for a meatier bird with more breast meat. The only thing they've been good for is soup. This year I'd like to get a breed that fits my expectations a little better. I'm looking at 4 different ones. The Freedom Ranger breed is almost exactly the same as the Dixies, so I don't think they'd be the best choice. McMurray's Cornish Roaster (NOT the Jumbo Cornish X Rock) seems to be decent. Standard Cornish pretty much seem to fit the bill, except my mom is concerned about the write up saying they "have very tight muscling; [they] are very popular with those who prepare poultry dishes, which need the meat to be firm following cooking." Since she has trouble getting meat to be tender, she's concerned about getting a breed that says it's tough. McMurray's write up on the Dark Cornish doesn't say anything about the meat being tough, and one of the reviews says they're delicious. Another breed is the Heritage White from S&G Poultry, which seems very similar to the Cornish Roaster. Anyone with opinions/experience with these breeds? I don't want a breed that grows so fast it has leg/heart problems, and I want more breast meat, and the meat should be tender.
