    Greetings!

    I have seen a number of posts relating to different breed eggs tasting different. I have not found a post on the actual meat taste being different. I understand that what you feed a flock can affect taste, but does the actual breed itself play a part?

    Thanks!

    I've never noticed a taste difference in eggs or meat.

    Qualified to say there can be a taste difference between Cornish cross meat birds and dual purpose in general. But as far as a barred Rock tasting different than a buff Orpington, no.
