So I was just telling a family member about my plan for Buff Orphingtons and Black Australorpes (wrong spelling) as a dual purpose breed in Alaska. He informed me there is no such think as a true dual purpose breed. If I went that way, I would be unhappy with egg production, and the meat would not be what it could be. Do I need to rethink my plan? Anyone have some insight here? Would love to know what you think.
