    these are my Fatboys, (straight run) 6 weeks old, I encourage ranging by having feed in the house and water outside

    Great job! Mine loved ranging, too. I moved my food and water outside, too. I even threw their feed on the ground so they had to scratch for it. On days where it rained and the food was kept inside the coop in a feeder, they didn't hardly touch it. The key for me was getting them outside at a young age and keeping food and water outside, too. Mine turned out great! Haven't gotten to eat one yet -- still in their ice bath.

    Doesn't look much like foraging, lol, but at least their buttare on green grass. LOL
