    I have come across the term "double breasted "when researching meat birds is this term self explanatory,I have just put together a pen for breeding meat birds and "Major" my cockerel looks to be double breasted,can you tell me if this is what is meant by D.B and will he pass this to his offspring or does the hen also need to be D.B (SO CONFUSING THIS MEAT BIRD BUSINESS. LOL)[​IMG][​IMG]
