    Because I have them, is it better to breed a Cornish cross with a Chanteclor bird or a Freedom Ranger with the Chanteclor? Which would produce a meater bird? Any thoughts?

    Thank you

    I crossed a Red freedom ranger hen with a Dark cornish rooster and got a dense heavy hen that is a laying machine.
