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

Rainbow Ranger Broiler Chickens are a great alternative to our fast-growing White Cornish Cross Broilers and slow-growing heritage breeds. These meat chickens were developed by the French, grow at a moderate rate and are more active. They are well suited as free-ranging, foraging, pasture raised broilers, making them ideal for your backyard or homestead. 

Our assortment of Rainbow Rangers will consist of a hatchery choice mix of colors, including the Redbro and Tricolor. The Redbro have dark red feathers on the body with a black tail. The tricolor is a mix of gold, black, gray and red feathers with a black tail. Rainbow Rangers have yellow shanks, beaks, and skin. Chicks will be various colors at hatch. Customers have reported average live weights of 5-6 pounds at processing time of 9-11 weeks. 

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.
