    I'm not normally on this forum, but instead hang out mostly on the duck forum.

    I raise Brown Leghorns, White Leghorns, New Hampshires, Easter Eggers, Australorps, Silver Laced Wyandottes, and Rhode Island Reds. Mine are 'nothing fancy' birds, for eye candy and of course, egg production. . We do eat the extra cull roosters, but we raise Cornish X's as well every year for our main meat supply.

    My birds free range over a couple acres of yard and pasture that is fully fenced. I haven't lost a chicken to a predator in YEARS, so they free range 24/7. The only time they don't free range is in the spring, when I separate out a few breeds at a time for purebred hatching eggs.

    My White Leghorns are supposedly from show stock, as are my RIR and SLW's supposedly - I wouldn't know, though. [​IMG]
