    Very interesting, since I am growing Freedon rangers indoor this time of year, and they are my first attempt at meat birds.

    They are now just under 3 months & I will start processing soon. The largest of them are as big as my Wyandottes. They have really sprouted up in the last 2 weeks. I am feeding them whole grains, not forcing high protein feeds so I am happy with their growth.
