Red Ranger chickens are a bird that doesn’t need the special care of the Cornish Cross yet produces a meaty body relatively quickly. They are the best bird for a small flock owner wanting fast growing meat birds that are relatively easy to raise. They grow at a moderately fast rate with great livability and a 70% live to dressed weight yield. The breast meat on a long keel is in natural proportion to the leg meat.
Our Red Rangers are a great alternative to fast-growing white broiler chicks or slow-growing heritage breeds. These active, robust chicks are suitable for free range, foraging and pasture environments and produce tender, succulent meat with more yellow omega 3 fat and less saturated fat than fast growing breeds. They can be raised with standard breed chickens as well.
Our Red Rangers feature mostly red-colored feathers with black feathered wing tips and tail feathers. These birds have strong legs, yellow shanks, skin and beaks. They are an active breed and thrive when allowed to free range, scratch and dust bathe in natural sunlight.
The genetic stock is derived from US developed pedigree lines using old heritage breeds of chickens.
