Fall broilers

Box of chicks

We really enjoyed the Red Ranger broilers we raised last year. They were fast-growing, tender and tasty, and best of all didn't die on pasture.

So we bought another box this fall --- 25 chicks to turn into Halloween meat. So far, all are happy and healthy and enjoying the
outdoor brooder.

Oh, I'm so interested in trying out Red Rangers for meat birds. Last year we did Delawares. Without a doubt the flavor of meat was the best I've ever had. It was like chicken turned up to 11. However, they are now raised as a dual purpose bird so are slower growing and consequently have poor feed conversion ratio. I'm looking forward to hearing how the RR Broilers work out for you this time.
