    Its hot here in ms...soo this may not be accurate.

    Bought. 30 cornish and 75 rangers

    Lost 10 cornish about the first 2 weeks
    1 ranger

    I slowed down the eating rates of the cornish.. helped

    I have all 74 rangers in my tractor and just started free ranging the cornish.

    There about 2 weeks apart.

    All seem happy....

    How did you slow down the eating rates? I will be watching to see how your freedom rangers do. We have always done Cornish X but we're thinking of trying the rangers. [​IMG]
