Hi all! We currently have a small flock of Freedom Rangers that are roughly 6 weeks old, and so far we really like them. They seem to be growing well, and have sweet personalities. My question is, has anyone ever hatched FR’s from their own flock? I have been trying to research it a little, and read somewhere that the chicks would not be the same as the parents- they would be a throwback to a previous ancestor. Has anyone tried this? Even if they don’t retain all the qualities of a FR, would they still make a feasible meat chicken? I am new to meat chickens, and although I know that Cornish X is probably the most economical, I am more interested in seeing if there are any more sustainable meat chicken options... something that I can possibly keep a handful of, and hatch out chicks, but will still grow fast to a good size. Any thoughts would be appreciated! Thanks!
