Broiler chickens or meat chickens are typically faster to mature and produce higher quality chicken meat than dual purpose or layer breeds. The Jumbo Cornish Cross has dominated the commercial chicken meat industry as the most efficient and fastest growing broiler chicken. However, slower growing broilers are becoming increasingly popular amongst natural and organic chicken growers.
A new breed of meat chicken has begun to grow in popularity in recent years. Red Broiler chicken strains are quit commonly raised in pastured poultry or “free range” farms. Many chefs and poultry enthusiasts claim that by raising the slower growing birds for a bit longer than the typical broiler, they achieve unrivaled flavor in the meat. Slower growing birds have time to develop more dark muscle fibers. This is great news for those dark turkey meat lovers out there.
Regardless, if you are looking for fast growing cornish broilers or free range pastured red broilers, you’ll find an excellent price for quality chicks. Not to mention, the best customer service in the industry.
