I am researching what meat breed to start with. I have layers now- barred rocks and production reds, but want to add some meat birds. I want meat birds that I can establish as a flock and eat from on an ongoing basis. So--- I need a breed that will reproduce true (not a hybrid I assume) with good mothers and roosters who are not mean. Must produce a nice plump carcass without the broken leg/short life cycle of the cornish X. Also must have an activity level above a coop potato so they will forage. All you meat bird experts out there..give me some ideas?
