    Can anyone suggest a breeder of Delwares, New Hamp reds, White Rocks or Dark Cornish that breeds for meat charcteristics only, and that you personally have experience with.

    Good Shepherd Poultry Ranch, aka Frank Reese has bred his Rocks for meat. They are very good sized. Being a heritage, old line, they do take a long time to mature, however.
