    I'd like to propose a new stickied topic, just a single post.

    It should follow this basic outline:

    I Meat birds
    II Dual purpose birds raised for meat
    III Crosses for meat production

    Section I would have a brief summary of the Cornish Crosses and Freedom Rangers (and red broilers, black broilers, whatever)

    Section II would list breeds commonly used for meat (Delaware, Buckeye, Brahma, New Hampshire, Orpington, etc.) and include a brief comparison of qualities.

    Section III would briefly summarize the results of some individual efforts to cross birds for meat production, mostly dual purpose x Cornish Crosses or Freedom Rangers. This would be a short section since there aren't really a whole lot of results out there, but a mention that "yes, people have thought about this and are trying" so that every newbie here (I did it it when I came) doesn't ask if it's possible.

    I'd be happy to act as the editor/compiler of the entry, but I would not be the least bit insulted if some BYC official took it upon him or herself.

    It just seems to me that there is a regular cycle of the same general questions asked over and over and this sort of reference would answer the basics.

    I have been thinking the same thing Tim. Only thing is, if this happens, and people reference it, there won't be many posts in this section. LOL Like you said, it's the same type posts all the time. I wish people, especially newbies, would utilize the search funtion more often.
