Ok, so we have decided to start raising meat birds this spring. We've been doing the eggs, no problem. It seems that many go with the cornish. After, reading about them, I think they seem so unnatural. . .the whole way they were bred to grow so fast. . not into it. I don't mind if the birds take longer to reach maturity. We live in the NJ and would want a hearty breed that could get outside when it still might be a little chilly. Any suggestions on what breed to go with?
