This will be my first attempt to raise meat birds and I need a little advise on what birds to choose. I have 4 acres of pasture and free range a flock of 15 laying hens and several turkeys. I understand rangers have a longer grow out period and are better suited for a free range environment but is the flavor different than the cornish x? I can get the cornish x locally for about 75 cents cheaper a bird, not including shipping. Since cornish grow so fast how long do they need to be kept under heat? Do the rangers fetch a higher price at sale time? If so what is a ballpark on what to charge? That may also help w/ my decision. Any advise, input or resources are greatly appreciated!
