    I'm looking for more info on breeds that bulge muscle, like the Cornish. I raised some dark Cornish last year and was pleased with the body style for a meat bird and wish to do some breeding experiments. But not strictly with the Cornish. What other breeds are out there that produce musculature like this? I'm open to quirky, rare, and goofy lookin birds ;)

    My buckeyes still surprise me --much heavier than they look.
