Spotlight Breed Of The Week  Freedom Rangers 
Freedom Ranger Chickens

These birds have been developed to be pasture grown, hardy birds and excellent foragers! Freedom Rangers are a broiler chick that are a great alternative to the fast-growing Cornish Rocks or the slower-growing heritage breeds. They grow at a moderate rate reaching 5-6 lbs in 9-12 weeks. This makes for a great broiler without some of the health issues that the faster-growing chicks might encounter. Their meat is tender and contains more yellow omega 3 fat and less saturated fat than the faster-growing birds. The genetic stock is derived from an American and European heritage breed that was developed in the early 1960's to meet the high standards of the French Label Rouge Free Range program. This program began 40 years ago as a grassroots movement led by visionary farmers in France. As poultry became more industrialized after World War II, demand grew in France for the taste of traditionally raised farm chickens. The  Freedom Rangers are very active and robust chickens that thrive if allowed to free range, scratch, and dust bathe in natural sunlight.
