So I've read that buff orpington chickens are considered dual purpose. They are also labeled as a heavy breed and are said to get as heavy as 8 or 9 pounds. For all practical purposes are buff orpingtons a reasonable meat bird or do they grow too slow/etc that makes them not worth raising for meat. I was considering picking up a big flock of them and incubating and hatching my own as a sustainable meat income. I don't eat 200 chickens a year and these would primarily be for friends and family to eat, not trying to sell. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.
