Ok, so we want to raise meat chickens for the family this year. The Cornish x scares me so well go with the freedom rangers or red broilers and pasture them. My question is; Do you have to keep them solely on processed feed? I figure pasturing them is going to unbalance their carefully formulated ration a bit anyway. What else can you get away with and still have a decent and healthy carcass at the end of eleven weeks? Lets say that we get the chicks in July or August. Well have garden surplus, perhaps a few small grains ripening, compost worms, fresh goat milk by the gallon... Has anyone tried this? Is it worth the effort?
