I really want to everyones opinions for the best dual purpose bird. I of course want my eggs to eat but I would also like to hatch some eggs to raise to eat. When I started with chickens a few years ago, I thought Black Australorps were the best choice. I am not so sure now. I had two 6-7 month old roos butchered yesterday and I am so disapointed in their size. There is no meat on them at all! What are your experiences and thoughts please.
