Last year was the first year I raised a couple turkeys for meat. Call it an experiment to see if I could do it, but it was a complete success, they were big and way better than your standard butterball. Now this year I would like to try a small flock of meat chickens as well as a few more turkeys. Now personally I do not like the traditional fast growing eating machines of today. I want a bird I can let free range outside and slaughter at around 5-6 months of age, what breeds would be best for this?
