I love this site! I've been combing through it for days, there is so much information here. Thanks! We hoping to raise at least 50 meat birds this summer and are trying to choose a breed (or possibly 2 different breeds). Taste + tenderness are by far the most important factors. Time until processing is not such a big issue. I've been considering Freedom Rangers, Dark Cornish, Cuckoo Maran, and even Buff Orphingtons. I know it's a very subjective thing but I'd love any suggestions or thoughts.
