    A meat bird that I used to own called Whitey was very strong in her legs and could walk around with ease(most of the time [​IMG] ). She would have to lay down every now and then to catch her breath, mostly after she waddled/ran after the other girls. Eventually she got so huge that she had to be butchered for her own good, but gave me a good deal of eggs, most of them double yolkers and one triple yolker! It amazed me that a big, heavy bird like her could laid such a huge egg!
