We processed a few roosters about 2 weeks ago. Lots of dark meat...However very good...I know part of it is the type of chicken. Processed 3 of my meaties last weekend. WOW!!!!! Now that is the best chicken I have ever tasted. We ate chicken at least 4 to 5 X a week before I started raising our own....so we have tasted some chickens...Store Chickens... I cannot believe the difference in Texture, Taste, Flavor and Color. There is no "Dark Meat" per say. However all the meat is juicy and flavorful.... Did I mention it taste Mmmm Mmmm Good. I never thought I could raise my own...But I am... My meaties are free range and spoiled ( That's my need not there's). I do and give to them....and in return they give so much more to my family.
