Meat Chicken Breeds for Pastured Production

FREE

While most pastured poultry producers in North America raise the same fast-growing Cornish-and-White-Rock-cross broilers used in conventional confined production, many producers are interested in alternative genetic types that may be more suitable for outdoor production or for niche markets. This publication provides information on the Cornish-Rock crosses in outdoor production, discusses several slower-growing breeds and provides information on hatcheries that offer these alternative breeds.
