So we have purchased Red Rangers again this year from Tractor Supply, and we have also purchased many other breeds from some other places like Buff Orpington, Barred Rock, Partridge Rock. We were given a Orpington mix rooster about 7 months old. We know we have at least 1 Barred Rock rooster and at least 1 Red Ranger rooster. I was told that even if we keep some RR pullets back, they won't breed (or won't breed true) to the RR breed, but if the RR pullet is bred by say the Barred Rock, will we still get some sort of good sized meat bird??? And what about the RR rooster or Buff?? I know all chickens can be consumed for meat, but I would like to have some birds that are worth my time. We tried Cornish Cross last year, lost all we purchased by 3 weeks to 4 weeks old. We just don't have a good setup for them inside.
