Yep, if you're craving red meat, you're probably lacking in iron and other nutrients.

I don't eat meat daily either. I actually don't like meat that much but every once and awhile I get a good craving. I can't eat red meat. It makes me sick. But I LOVE ham, bacon, chicken strips and I love pepperoni on a pizza. Once and awhile I get a craving for deer/moose but its rare that I do. We buy all our meat local so its not that expensive and we actually kill and gut our own wild meat.

OMG, we are WWAAAYYYY off topic.
SR, don't bother with meat birds, ESPECIALLY Cornish X's. They are too much trouble and the meat bird feed is expensive. Buy dual egg/meat. Many people like Rhode Island Reds bc they lay a lot. I've cross bred out my RIR's twice now, and I still get a lot of eggs. We eat all of the young roosters, and I replace my layers every year now, so we also eat the hens.

Don't worry Corporal, I'm looking at dual purpose birds. I'm very interested in Orpingtons, but am more than willing to consider other breeds as long as the roos are fairly docile. The first time a roo comes after me, he'll be in the freezer!

Go with the Orpingtons. Some RIR roosters come directly from HeXX.
Really, chickens are the easiest livestock to keep.

Lol I'm "nekhebet". I used to have quail and a few serama, but my dog was killing birds so we gave them all away =(

Meat birds suck...we had one just drop dead. No reason...just died from carrying around all that bulk, even before he was old enough to go to Freezer Camp.

That stinks. He probably did, too, before you found him. =b
I have trained my dogs--only one was a chicken killer--now, "Pyg" is told to guard the gates, (she just lays down and waits further orders), and "Rose" gets in trouble if she chases, so they both at ages 5 & (almost) 6, behave around my birds.
They know when it's butchering day bc we three leave the kitchen with my butchering knives and knife sharpener. On those days I am never lonely.

If I stopped eating meat I would probably be disowned, lol. But I do live on the family beef farm, . Chickens too!
