This is going to be my first go about with meat chickens. I have layers now, but with the prices of things going up I thought I would try some meat chickens. I have been reading the praises of Freedom Rangers on here. I was wondering what would happen if I ordered some extra and made my own flock. Has anyone kept some hens and a roo and see what the chicks are like? Or is this something I will have to reorder every year? Also any advice for a first timer? I know not to name them. I have found a place to process them. I forgot to ask about how much it would cost to process. I read on the internet that it would be about $2.40- $2.75 does that sound about right?
