    Is that there a difference in these birds (besides the name)? I'm wondering if it's basically the same bird different hatchery? Is their meat quality, size etc alike?

    TIA,

    I've raised both. I found the Red Rangers took about two weeks longer to get to the same weight as the Freedom Rangers. So an 11 week RR was the same size as a 9 week FR. They were both healthy, active, tasty birds, but I prefer the Freedom Rangers.
