Red rangers?

I've been catching up on my farm videos on YouTube of people I subscribed to. One of the people, a switched to red rangers. So I wondered. What's the difference, and are they available in alberta.

Re: Red rangers?

Each hatchery has their own "alternative" broiler it seems. They have various names. As far as I can tell, none perform as well as the Cornish X.

Re: Red rangers?

I tried the Red Rangers, I think they called them Red Meat Makers but close to the same thing.  Didn't like them, skinny, slow growing things. I get the Cornish Giants now and had very good luck this year.  Ordered 25, got 26, and they all survived. Finished processing them yesterday at 8 weeks of age 4 to 5 lbs each. I know some people keep them longer to get to a bigger size but for just the two of us that's perfect.

Re: Red rangers?

If you look back in the Meat Poultry topic archives there's lot of discussion on the various alternatives to Cornish Cross. Generally they are all like 100milegal said. We've tried several and always gone back to Cornish X.
