Okay, this is kinds strange, but I have a White Silkie Roo, the 9 girls I have are 2 frizzle, 1 American game, and 6 mixed or mutt chickens, anyone's guess. I don't currently have the room to expand my coop to be able to get a 2nd roo. I am going to hatch chicks this coming spring, hopefully my Silkie and Frizzle hens to get Sizzle chicks, don't know about the others yet. I don't know anything about meat birds at this point, and would like to be able to get some to go to freezer camp in the fall. My main problem with freezer camp is I do get attached to my chickens, feeding, watering, collecting eggs, cleaning out the coop, and just sitting in the run and watching their chicken antics. Always too funny!! My dh says, there your birds so you decide how to handle them!!! He was nice enough to help dispatch my 2 roo's I got and thought they were hens. Magoo and Hawkeye RIP! Chickens it seems up here (Northern Alberta, Canada) are only for 2 purposes, eggs or meat.
