We have 9 layers (reds), but they seem a bit....wirey....to eat. What do you raise for cooking?

We have several breeds. Delaware, Naked Neck, and Dark Cornish all make a decent carcass. We currently have several dozen Marans, easter egger, and Cream Legbar cockerals that are about ready to harvest. The Marans especially are favored in Europe for their flavor. None will be as filled out as a commercial broiler, but will taste better and be sustainable.

When I was a kid we used to have White barred Rock, they were big meaty birds that lay like Leghorns. As I recall we would get them though Murray McMurray.

I sometimes buy my eggs from a local farmer who raises chickens and sells eggs. No eggs are better tasting than ones that come from chickens who wander around the grounds supplementing their diet by eating bugs. So good!!

Quoted for the truth! We get eggs from a Mennonite family up the road- ungraded BROWN eggs with yolks as orange as they can be. About 20% are double yolks.

Good eating, and GREAT for baking!

Good heavens. This was sure one feisty 107 year old.

Well, he was shooting at them. I kind of don't blame them.

From the article they pumped gas under the door and used a destruction device (guessing flash bang) when they entered but the 107 year old man was not phased??? I can understand you need anyone who is actively shooting to stop and waiting for him to take a nap is absurd. I am scratching my head though that tear gas or something similar would have no effect. Sounds like either the news made some assumptions without facts.
