e’ve been raising meat chickens every other summer, and last summer was our summer off. This year, my wily brother-in-law convinced my folks to try a new breed. They are called Freedom Rangers (oh my!) and we got them through the Freedom Ranger Hatchery of Lancaster, PA. We’re hoping they get around a little bit better than the standard white ones we have raised, although we’ll see how easy they are to catch come September;) My grandpa asked me if I was the one who painted them brown, but I told him, you know I only sling barn-red paint.
My niece like to kiss them on the beak when the adults turn their backs:)
