    Try golden sex-link, or just sex-link in general.

    Red sex link (red sex-link)
    Gold sex link (gold sex-link)
    Black sex link (black sex-link)

    The birds are a cross between two breeds. They are mainly meant for egg production, but once their egg production has decreased, they make a very tasty and nicely sized meal. (Especially in chicken soup!)
