I am planning to get into meat birds next year nothing crazy maybe 10 or so. I am not sure what I should go with. I am new to meat birds and not sure if I can pay allot of attention to bird care and feeding. And I cannot have rosters that crow do to unfriendly neighbors. I plan to get a new batch of layers in the spring and am not sure if I am better off getting a few more dual purpose breed birds and slaughter the odd balls, or go straight into broilers. Is there a big difference in meat between a proper broiler and a dual purpose breed? Is there a broiler that is not super high maintenance? What dual purpose breeds are good layers and meat birds, but also are mellow and cold hardy? I have some Barred and Partridge Rocks now, I like the Barred but the Partridge are to spooky. So something along those lines would be nice.
