    Are they broody?
     
  2. To answer the title question: Basically, there is nothing that isn't suitable for free range, except perhaps CXs and RTL factory pullets...
    Most turkeys are broody. I haven't had any experience with RPs, though.

    RP's are fine for free ranging. The hens usually do go broody but most hens are lost off of free range nests. I pen my hens in the spring and collect the eggs to hatch.
