Meat Kings VS Dual-Purpose Chickens

Dual-purpose chickens are a hybrid of the meat chicken and the egg-laying chicken, and they're quickly becoming a popular option.

Meat kings are bred just for meat. They are a fast-growing chicken, so fast that they are ready to be butchered within 6 weeks.

This is a low-time investment, lower feed cost investment as you are only feeding them for 6-8 weeks.

With dual-purpose chickens, you get the best of both worlds. You have a source of eggs and meat.

Often hens are kept for eggs, and roosters go in the freezer.

Dual purpose start laying between 16 and 20 weeks, so you have to wait 3+ months for eggs and to breed them.

Meat kings aren't going to live to reproduce on your homestead so you are going to have to buy them somewhere.

But you could easily raise and butcher dual-purpose chickens without outside help.
