Heavy or Dual Purpose Chicken Breeds

Heavy Chickens display heavy set body types and dense feathers. Heavy Breeds can typically withstand colder climates due to their feather type and larger size and will lay more consistently during the cold months of the year.

If you live in a particularly cold climate, Heavy Breeds will not only perform better as far as egg production and overall health, but your chickens will also be happier and more fun to raise compared to non-heavy breeds.
