I've got plenty of white leghorn hens and had considered butchering some when they are of age but are the hens as good of fryers as the roosters

I've heard that leghorns are relatively small, and don't make good meat birds in general.

I would keep them for their eggs or sell the hens as layers- they are great layers of white eggs, but are small and not very meaty.
