Since jumping into poultry with both feet, I have far more birds than I want to winter over. I have treid a few different birds to see what will work and what we like. Though after only a short time, I don't yet have enough information to be sure which birds I like best. Here is a question I struggle with. A little more back ground first. I raised BBW to a very large size to get as much meat as possible for the processing fee of $ 10 each. These were big birds, males dressing out at 35 pounds. A little big for our family and roasting pans, but doable. I need to learn how to cut up a birds before freezing. THen I hatched a lot of hatchery type birds mixes with some non-hatchery. I learned to process my own and discovered two things. I can clean a bird pretty quickly now with little mess. ANd the carcass was poor on most, better on the non-hatchery types. I definitely liked the character of the meat, My question is turkeys or chickens? THey are very different in management. WHat do factors do you consider when selecting one over the other?
