With spring around the corner, its just about time for us to order some broilers to grow out. I would like to raise something different and was hoping to get some opinions from seasoned homesteaders that process their own food. Keeping in mind, that we do not sell our meat and don't really mind a smaller carcass as it does not take too much to feed two. So if you could, a minute or two to post the pros and cons of raising different breeds that you have experience with?? Over the last few years we have raised cornish cross, which I am not a big fan of. They are disgusting creatures really. I think they smell worse than other birds, they can't / wont forage, in fact they barely even scratch. They waste food like crazy and I find the meat to be rather bland and dry. They do grow out quickly, which might be good for some, but is not of concern to me.
