I'm new to the art of breeding chickens but I'm starting to understand the techniques to breed for the traits I'm after. Can anyone provide input or point me to resources that would explain how to apply those principles to developing my own meatie? I'm not looking for something that would compete with the cornish cross - I just want some heritage type birds that grow a little faster and get a bit bigger for personal use. For example here's a specific question. I have brahmas for size and rocks for growth rate. Should I choose a brahma rooster to breed with rock hens or a rock roo with brahma hens? Or maybe I'm looking at this the wrong way and should choose a breed that will suit the purpose and start develop that... Thanks.
