I just got two free roosters from an ad on craigslist. Two really nice 6 month old guys - no spurs yet. They were from McMurray but they are HUGE! Anyway I am debating on which one will go in the freezer and which one will stay with the girls. Eggs, are great but meat is equally as great. 50/50. The RIR is really well muscled and believe it or not is much friendlier. The orpington looks huge but he is really fluffy. I have production reds so I am not sure which will be better to go with them ALSO --- They are about twice the size of my hens and they are REALLY mean to them. Just brought them home tonight so the coop is dark. Wondering what I will wake up to....will they kill my girls?
