I raised my 1st meaties this year. They did "free range" about 25 feet from their coop. I did the standard CX and they are soooo tastey. However, they are lazy, lay around in their own poop etc. Thankfully, I was able to get them up so they never had blisters, had very large feet and legs, but their breast feathers were sparse and pathetic. Is there a meaty that is a bit slower growing, a bit more active, with more dark meat (we fight over the dark in this house!)? Where would I get such a chick? Are they more expensive than CX?
