    Hi... I got jersey giants (chicks) and find even though big .....are not good for frying or roasting? or has anyone tried?

    What breeds (other than corning rock which die to easy) are good for all purpose? I have the following almost roosters

    Barred Rock
    EE
    RIR
    Leghorns (they will be spared but what do I do with the roosters?)
    Marens
    Black Giants

    What is best to do with each breed and when to process? What other breeds are good for all purpose eating?

    Does anyone have a bred or cross that you can sell eggs that will produce GOOD big meat?

    Thanks
