    Ok....I know you can eat about any chicken at any age. I know that age, diet, etc... will mean a difference in taste. My question is....if you want chickens for regular cooking not just stews etc... should you only look at the so-called meat breeds??? I get really confused about this!!

    Any breed will do, depending of course on how big of a chicken you want to cook and how many people you want one cooked chicken to feed at a sitting. Banties will be like a really good, filling meal for one good sized person (about like a cornish game hen), standards will usually feed a family of 3 or 4 depending on how much they eat.
