    I have a question about the freedom rangers. Do they have a long breast bone and carcass shape like your standard breeds or are they broadbreast like the cornishX? Do they taste like standard breeds or mushy like CX? I want something that taste like real chicken not like the cornish cross.

    Here's my opinion: Our FRs had longer narrower breasts than CX. The breast has a substantial amount of meat, but the FRs have larger leg/thigh quarters than CX. And the texture and flavor are more like chickens I remember from my childhood long ago [​IMG]
