    I have found that MT-DI sells a "Red Ranger" from France which sounds the exact same or very similar to the Freedom Ranger of JM Hatcher only they are .30 cents a bird less for 50 and .05 cents less per hundred. Has anybody raised any of these from MT-DI? Also Nolls has a Kosher King and a red and white broiler for .60 Cents each for 100 has anyone tried any of these birds? If so what is your opinions?

    There
    is thier link, they are another hatchery out of PA. They sell cornish cross, the Red Ranger and a breed called Rosambro? which is suppose to be somewhere between the Cornish X and a Ranger. I was just curious if anyone used them as they are cheaper than J&M. I am thinking they are the same birds.

    Thats the first place I've seen offer capons. They are pricey but I might buy some just to see.
