I have 2 BR and 1 RR and a Long Horn that does not lay anymore. I just culled a Black Sex Link and was very puzzled about all the fat this bird had. Not much meat at all. Now will the rest of the birds be the same or are some beter as meat birds as well as layers......Any help would be nice... Thanks.....jim

The leghorn is not known to have much meat anyways. The BR and RR will probably have more meat than the sex link but it will still have a good amount of fat. Either way you are still using up the meat, I always take my spent hens and either soup them or debone most of the meat and grind it up and use it for taco or chili meat.
