Myers Poultry Farm is one of the hatcheries that is offering a wide variety of colored rangers in addition to the Cornish X.

"What these birds will do is forage, be active, and dust bathe but most important put on ample meat weight. Slower growing breeds have a darker yellow fat compared to the pale yellow fat of the fast growing. Also, breast bone, leg, and wings are longer in length. What these birds will not have is that double breast meat and fast growth rate." -From catalog
