Rainbow Rangers

Rainbow Ranger broiler chick

Broiler chicks are enjoying the green grass and alfalfa in the sunshine this week.

This year we are trying a new breed — Rainbow Rangers, which are better at ranging on pasture and foraging for special treats, like bugs and seeds. They are aren’t growing at the accelerated rate of conventional broilers, so we will invest at least a month more of growing time and feed into these birds, but we have hopes that they will offer even better taste to our customers.

They are definitely feistier, smarter, and more active than conventional broilers!
