After raising 35 Freedom Rangers last summer and being very satisfied with the results, I want to raise more this summer (we only have 3 left in thte freezer!). My husband, however, was not thrilled with the experience of helping me evacuate the 35 Freedom Rangers and my 8 layers out of the path of the Waldo Canyon Fire. At first he said "never again", but over the course of the winter he has relented to "no more than 15-18 at a time. So, for awhile I was stumped, because you can't order less than 25 Freedom Rangers. However, I did find McMurray Hatchery will sell Red Rangers in batches as small as 15 if you are getting delivery after April 30th. So, I ordered 18 Red Rangers for early May delivery. Does anyone know how Red Rangers compare to Freedom Rangers? I know it's a bit late to ask, since I already ordered them, but I'm still curious. By the way, forcast for the summer of 2013 is that it will be as bad or worse than 2012, so perhaps hubby is right about limiting the number of chickens we will need to evacuate in case of another fire.
