My goal is to raise my own meat chickens. I have a variety of dual-purpose hens and would like to get some advise as to which breeds of roosters would help produce a faster growing, good sized meat chicken. I currently have a mutt roo that will be going to freezer camp as soon as my secondary roo is old enough (he is 14 weeks atm). My second roo is an Ideal Poultry "black broiler". I am not sure what breeding went into him, but he is healthy so far, not getting too big but is good sized. If he does get too big, he will go to freezer camp. I kept him on a whim to see what would happen, but after processing the rest of his batch, I am wishing now that he wasn't black! (plucking black birds was an adventure in frustration and their carcasses are not as appetizing as a white birds because of the dark pigmentation left in the skin). My third roo is just 10 weeks old and I got him because of a recommendation from someone on BYC who said to get a standard Cornish to use to produce meat chickens. Unfortunately, he is a Dark Cornish (they were out of the White Laced Red and the Buff when I placed my order). I have, however, read varying opinions on the growth rate of the standard cornish (some saying slow and some saying fast) so I am not sure, yet, if he will be the rooster I am looking for. This coming spring I am planning on getting a White Plymouth Rock rooster, hoping to up the odds of lighter colored chicks, and I have read they grow pretty fast also. I would love to get some opinions on the 2 roosters I have that I am planning on using (the Black Broiler and the Dark Cornish), as well as on the White Plymouth Rock I would like to get. I would also love suggestions, opinions and ideas on other breeds that you think would be as good/better than the 3 I have chosen so far. Thank you for your time and consideration.
