Hello, First of all, I'm hoping to put together a self sustaining flock of birds for both eggs and meat. I've got 3 acres, half is fenced in pasture, so they will be free ranging inside the pasture. I live in southwest Ohio. I would prefer my birds to be broiler/fryers. I eat a lot of grilled and fried chicken, not many slow cooked stews. Is there a dual purpose bird that will be big enough to slaughter while the meat is still young and tender? I know there aren't any that compete with the Cornish cross, but for all of you dual purpose breeders out here, what do you raise or reccomend?
