Our Red Ranger broiler males reach market weight about 2 weeks later than Freedom Ranger meat chickens. This is a cross bred, slower growing, red broiler that was developed with a longer keel and more of that classic, old fashioned "country chicken" feel with big red combs and nice plumage. This breed was developed by S&G Poultry in Alabama and isn't related to the Freedom Ranger (The Freedom Ranger originated from the Label Rouge Program in France).
Only males are available at this time. This is because the Red Ranger is popular in Confucius style dishes which require a female chicken. We are left with the males which we offer to you at a very reasonable price. You can't go wrong with a couple of these broilers on your Back 40!
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.
