Tastiest fryer/roaster breed (pastured)?
Could not find any taste ratings on the web.
Experimenting this year. Usually raise RIR and Cornish Rock breeds for tasty breeds to freeze. This year, due to family obligations, have to be away too long, so can only afford time to raise the edibles in 4 months. So far, our favorite tasting fryer or roaster is the RIR. Meyer Hatchery in OH is close to us, and will sell us as few as one bird of a breed.
Have thought of Delaware, Buff Orphs, White Plymouth Rock, RIR, and, Black Jersey Giant breeds for a total of 70 birds. Anyone familiar with raising these together?
Though I believe taste is very sujective, how do you compare/rate flavors?
Personalities are also important. I thought I could butcher the largest and/or most aggressive first. Birds will have multiple range sites. Organic feeds.
