Hi, I’m fairly new to chicken raising and living on a small farm. I have a separate set of goals for my layers, but want to start meat birds this spring. Our abattoir doesn’t have the equipment for processing them for sale, so we will be taking them to a larger processing plant. My first run of meat birds I’m looking at a local hybrid bird (not a CX) I can get in decent quantities, but I’m wanting to establish a breeding flock and hatch my own going forward. I’m not worried about being a pure breed heritage or anything, but I’d like to have a sustainable meat bird I can hatch at home. What breeds would you recommend and why? I don’t need monster birds, but I would like a marketable, decent sized carcass. I’m in BC Canada.
