    I did and had eggs selling for a while. Then my rooster got killed. I sold some eggs to people here but have no idea how the chicks turned out.

    I've hatched some Freedom Ranger X Freedom Ranger chicks this spring. Five are almost 2 weeks old and a FR X FR and a FR X RIR are 5 weeks old. So far they look pretty much like their parents did. The RIR X has a lot of barring like the FR roo. A broody Silkie is sitting on two more FR eggs. I'm going to keep hatching and see how they grow out. It's a little slow because the roo and hens are free ranging and I'm not finding all their eggs...I think there is probably a pile under the coop! I got the parents from Joel last year but this year his SIL Kendall Fox is selling the chicks at www.freedomrangerhatchery.com.

    It will be interesting to see how fast they grow compared to their parents. Let us know how they mature. Thanks.​
