I am a firm believer of free ranging. My chickens are overall happier, healthier, and the feed costs drop dramatically. I currently have Cornish X meat birds that were born 2 days before Thanksgiving and they are getting huge. I am thinking about allowing them to free range as well, understanding of course the meat will be tougher than if I didn't. Who here free ranges their meat birds and how well does it work out for you? How does it compare with the feed costs? Are they as good at dealing with predators? Will they grow out as nice as if they aren't free ranged? And any other opinions you can add! Thanks.
