I butchered my first batch of silver laced wyandotte hens last fall. I also butchered RIRs. They were both 2 year old hens. I was really surprised at the amount of fat near the rear end of the wyandottes. A tremendous amount. The RIR's did not have this. Has anyone else encountered this with Wyandottes being fatty. I really liked the Wyandottes much better than the RIRs. I raised them primarily for eggs, but they all make great soup!! Thanks for all your comments.
