I have 2 New Hampshire Reds. They are about a month younger than my other chickens but they are huge. I call one of them Big Momma because she is the biggest of the bunch. Are the New Hampshire Reds normally big chickens? I keep looking at them thinking that they would be good to breed for meat chickens. I keep looking at the size of the breasts on these girls and just keep thinking how good they would be. I have named and gotten to know these girls so they will never make it to the rotissarie but if they are normally this big and meaty I'm thinking that I need to get about a dozen of them and raise them for meat chickens.
