Breed Information

This supplier is NPIP certified.

Our day old Black Freedom Rangers originate from four different heritage breeds bred to the high standards of the French Label Rouge breeding program of the 1960’s. The breeding flock has been imported from Burgundy and Brittany, France. The Black Freedom Ranger chickens retain the qualities of the good old chicken – such as dust bathing, ground scratching, and basking in sunlight – and produce meat with exceptional taste and firm (but not tough) texture that delights discerning eaters. These are fantastic, robust, and hardy chickens that love free range and pastured environments and do well in any climate once they are fully feathered. They will excel and thrive on your homestead or hobby farm!

We typically ship a straight run (a random mix of both genders).

Freedom Rangers do well in confinement, requiring 2-3 cubic feet of space per bird, but will taste better if allowed to be pastured or free range. They do require a place to roost that is safe from the elements.

After 15 weeks of age, the Freedom Ranger becomes sexually active and goes through a hormone change which makes the meat tougher and less desirable.

These black broilers are valued among discerning meat consumers for their taste and texture.

Nutrition

Feed – Broilers

  • 21-22% protein starter 2-3 weeks
  • 18-19% protein grower until week 7
  • 16-17% protein finisher

Feed Conversions

  • 2.5 lbs feed per 1 lb of gain – harvested at 8-9 weeks.
  • 2.7 – 2.8 feed per lb of gain – harvested at 10-11 weeks.

Weights

Freedom Rangers take approximately 1-2 weeks longer to reach the same weights as the Cornish hybrids (the common commercial breed).

  • Broilers harvested at 9-11 weeks average 4.5 – 6 lbs dressed weight
  • Approximately 6 lbs live weight.
  • 68% – 70% dressed weight vs. live weight.

Leg problems

Almost every time this occurs it is because of a vitamin B2 deficiency. Solution: Buy a common vitamin B supplement at your local drugstore and dissolve it in your chick’s water supply. This should help within 24 – 48 hours.

How This Works

Pick the hatch date, whether you want vaccinations or not (not available on every breed), then add the chicks to your cart. Checkout using PayPal or any major credit card. We have a minimum order of 15 chicks from April 1 - October 31 and 25 chicks from November 1 to March 31. We put more chicks in a box during colder weather to keep them warm during shipping.

Once the order is complete we receive your order and schedule it for your preferred hatch date. If we can’t fit it in our schedule for whatever reason on the date you selected, we’ll let you know.

Once the order has shipped we will mark your order complete and attach the tracking # to your order. You should get an email with confirming the order is complete.

The chicks typically take 1 - 2 days after they have hatched to reach your local post office. The post office should call you when the chicks arrive.

Wait for the call from your local post office. Typically USPS will ship the chicks to the post office associated with your zip code but occasionally they may require you to pick the chicks up at a main hub - especially if the delivery is running behind schedule.

Pick up your chicks at your local post office.

Let us know if you have any issues with your order within 48 hours after the arrival of your chicks.
