Read about the difference between our Rainbow, Gray, and Black Ranger Broilers. 

Black Ranger Broilers meat birds are a top choice chicken for free-ranging or pasturing. Black Rangers have a slightly slower growth rate than the Rainbow Ranger Broilers and will reach 5 to 6 pounds in about 11 to 13 weeks. Black Ranger Broilers have Black Australorp in their heritage. Black Rangers are well suited for niche marketing by anyone selling dressed chicken. They are an established gourmet variety due to their higher meat density and exceptional flavor, which is even more so when raised in a pastured or free range environment.

These birds have black feathers and can have different colored feathers in their neck, cape, back and tail, black legs, black beaks and white skin. Because the Ranger Broilers have not been cultivated for a specific characteristic in regard to feather pattern like your standard breeds, they are more able to adapt to any environment and ideal for free range. You can expect about 50% of your Black Ranger Broilers to be black and about 50% will throw those off colored markings. 

Brood your Ranger Broilers for 3-4 weeks, starting at 95 degrees, decreasing by 5 degrees each week. At that point, they will be fully feathered out and ready for your pasture. 

A vitamin supplement, such as Vital Pack Plus, is an excellent supplement choice for the life of the birds. Ranger Broilers can occasionally have leg issues but is nearly always related to a deficiency in the diet. Vitamins will typically rectify any issues within 24 to 48-hours. 

Your Ranger Broilers will dress out at approximately 68-70% of live weight.

Feeding Schedule: 
Age 1 day to 3 weeks, feed your broiler chicks a 21 - 22% protein chick starter. 
From 3 to 7 weeks, decrease your protein to 18 - 19% with a grower formula. 
From 8 weeks to processing, reduce protein to 16 - 17% feeding a finisher formula.

Feed Conversion Rates:
2.5 pounds feed per pound of live weight if processed at 8 to 9 weeks.
2.7-2.8 pounds of feed per pound of live weight if processed at 10-11 weeks.
