As I've taken quite (an unplanned) hiatus from blogging, I will try and do a better job of chronicling this group's sojourn with us. Our plan is to raise them to 10 weeks before butchering. This is our first time with the Freedom Ranger breed which is advertised as a healthy, hearty bird that forages well and has good feed conversion, often achieving a dressed weight of 5 pounds or more at 9 - 11 weeks old.
