GRR. ARGH. HARUMPH! My BF and I went down to our local Agway to special order some meat chickens. Mind you, my BF knows NOTHING about chickens. All of our chicken ventures thus far have been my doing. I've researched the different meat chicken possibilities and have settled on my first batch being Freedom Rangers, as opposed to the Cornish X's that are also quite popular. So... We go down to Agway today. Their "chicken specialist" who does all of the ordering works on Mondays. We hunt him down and I ask him if he could order me some and how much they would be and he looks at me like I'm a dumb-dumb and says "They're all free rangers! What is it that you ACTUALLY want?" He's talking to me all slow-like while he watches a pretty gal put up a sign for him. I explain that I'm looking for FREE-DOM RAN-GERS and he looks at me like I'm an idiot! He says "There's no such thing!" I was a little dumb-founded because I've been doing a bit of reading on here...and people distinctly refer to Freedom Rangers like they exist. He told me maybe I heard wrong and people mean "free-rangers." I explain to him the small knowledge that I have on the bird and that I'm not interested in the Cornish X. He INSISTS that there's no such thing and that I must be confused. He turns to my boyfriend while he's talking to me, in my mind to get a man to step in who knows what he's talking about, and the BF keeps quiet. We go back and forth a little bit, all the while I'm trying to be as polite as I can be. When we left - I was a irritated. Firstly, because I'm not an idiot or his daughter and shouldn't be spoken to like such. And secondly, because both my BF and myself got the impression that he was being a bit chauvinistic in his male-approach to me. Why is it that he wouldn't know what a Freedom Ranger was and then adamantly denied that anything like that could exist? Am I missing something? Do they go by other names? Is it a patented name like "Kleenex" is to facial tissues? Thank you for listening to my rant and answering my question if you do!
