I am considering trying ordering Buff Roos strictly for meat. The reason is that I anticipate that I won't have the health issues to contend with as compared to the CX. I am on my 3rd batch of CX and not ecstatic about the fragility of these birds. If buffs will work I can go to all buff hens and raise my own also. I am curious if anyone else has used buffs for meat and what to expect as far as age to butcher and feed efficiency. I would probably allow the buffs to free range a good portion of the time. Any thoughts or experiences would be greatly appreciated.
