    She looks like a meat bird to me!

    Shes as round as a foot ball.

    anything that gets ate, is a meat bird..

    anything that lays an egg, is an egg bird

    anything that does both, is a dual purpose bird

    some are just geared towards one side more than another.

    If you don't need a big bird for your table, and prefer flavor over rapid growth, a Cornish bantam would serve as an excellent meat bird IMO. They're not going to produce a ton of eggs, but as a self-replenishing source of great flavored meat with nice appearence served whole, I think they might serve you well.
