Hey everyone so I am really considering ordering some meat birds this year and raising them, last year I got some layers so I am still new to the chicken thing but love raising them. I have been doing lots of research trying to figure out what breed I want and if I want pullets or cockerels? My tsc has broilers and I thought that that's what I wanted since they would be quick to raise but they aren't good in the heat and can have quite the heart and leg problems so now I'm not sure, also some people say their meat doesn't taste as good as a heritage breed? so what are your opinions? Go with a broiler or a slower growing dual purpose bird? And pullet or cockerel or straight run?
