Does anyone raise both the CX and Range birds? I started a batch of 100 Hubbard White Mountain Chicks (CX) 4/28 hatch, Colored RAnge birds from J&M 5/6 hatch, and have another 100 Dixie Rainbow in the brooder (6/1). I put the CX out on pasture at 3 weeks. The were very active but I never saw them grazing on the wonderful clover field at their feet. A week later I added 25 of the larges best featherd range birds. Within a few days of adding the range birds the CX were grazing with just as much attention an gusto as the range birds. Has anyone else had this experience? This particular line of CX (Hubbard) seems to be much healthier and more active than any of the CX that we raised on the farm growing up. They are always running all over the place and even flying small distances. They will be 6 weeks tomorrow and they are not the fat lazy birds that most describe. I am just wondering if it is the bloodline, the fact that I have tried to slow down their growth rate slightly, or the influence of the colored range birds????? I currently have over 50 CX (sold the other 50) and 80+ of the range birds out on pasture. They are split between two different tractors at night (there is usually a mix in each tractor every night) and turned out to free range during the day. It will be interesting to see how they develop over the next few weeks.
