I have what y'all would consider free range chickens I always just considered them loose chickens until now. They are crossed up between barred rocks?, some breed of red chicken and some breed of white chicken. Probably half are raised by hens and I raise some from incubating (approximately 20 a year) . They eat whatever leftoverss they find in other livestock feed troughs and whatever they scratch up. The feed mill I buy from's truck driver delivers to me every Monday afternoon and Thursday morning he told them I had them running loose and so Wednesday when I called to order feed they mentioned if I would sell some, I said yes $10. This weekend I sold 47 to the three people they sent out. I called the mill owner and told him don't send anybody else as I will run out of chickens. He brought me his personal incubator and I'm filling up his and mine to supply the mill with chicks or grown hens. He offered a dollar a chick and $10 a hen for something that will eat maybe $5 of feed to grow out is an unheard of profit margin in agriculture so along with quickly considering they can sell a dozen eggs for a $2 a dozen at the supermarket then I felt he was giving me a great price. So I already fixed the door to my 60 year old coop my grandfather built and caught 20 hens and three roosters to put in it. After reading posts on here I thought people had gotten an elitist attitude towards having chickens? There's lots of people who don't care what breed it is they just want colorful chickens producing a few eggs so don't look at your accidental mutts as throw aways.
