Are RIR'S good meat birds? Of so how Long can you wait to kill and eat?
Oh thanks !Bee said:Not really...they are an egg breed. If you have heritage lines they will be meatier than hatchery birds, but they are still not considered a meat or true dual purpose bird.
If you are raising roosters for meat, you can process at 3-5 mo. and still have a pretty tender bird.
