How does dark meat compare to chicken breasts?

I know there is a higher fat content in chicken legs or thighs, but I seem to recall hearing that dark meat has advantages over white meat.

I'm just getting a little tired of chicken breast and find the dark meat to be a little tastier and a nice change of pace.

higher iron content is the one that pops immediately to mind. if you are not a big fan of red meat, dark meat chicken might be a good way to go.
