I'm raising 12 RIR's and 13 Light Brahma's for meat. I know similar questions are asked here all the time, but there are many different opinions. I just wanted to know what your thoughts are on these two breeds as meat birds? Particularly the pros and cons. I wanted to go with Delewares, but I'm not patient enough, as they are out of stock everywhere this time of year. I want heritage so I can constantly breed them without having to buy more chicks all the time. I've heard that RIR's don't like to sit on their eggs, while Brahma's do like to. Brahma's are also big, so it seems like the brahma's may be the best choice. This is why I'm thinking I may just keep these RIR's as egg layers, keep maybe 6 or so of the Brahma's for breeding and eat the remaining Brahma's. What do you think? Is this a good path? Think I should go with another breed?
