    Orpington.

    Not that I'm biased.

    If I set on a Saturday, I hatch on a Saturday, not sure if that wold be 21 days or 22... And my broodys tend to take a bit longer.

    The average weight for my birds is anywhere from 10 lbs. to 12 lbs. The legs and breast are where your real meat will be. They grow VERY slowly but luckily, bad attitudes are just not usually seen in the standards. Females are usually around 7-8 lbs. With large females reaching 9 lbs.

    Boy do they tend to be broody....I have two bantam white hens that are broody in the same nest right now. It is not a pleasant thing...

    The bantams, to me, are a bit more cost-efficient in the meat department. For their size, they pack a LARGE body and lay exceptionally well. And as always, go broody!

    See I like FB better. Easier to follow the conversation over there for me because replies are posted directly under the original thread. To me here is is like reading a book alright... page 1, page 14, page 32, page 1 page 12.....
