I bought my Freedom ranger chicks back in November with high hopes of beautiful plump tasty meat...There is a FR thread with pictures and talk of when my birds arrived and my excitement. I should have butchered them last week but they are Thin and boney as heck. You don't notice it unless you pick them up. I cannot feed them enough. I have tried and tried and they are always starving. They were on just scratch(to be all natural) then I added tucker all stock (I feed it to the cow anyway) to give them more and they were still hungry. They are free ranging on my 3+ acres and my neighbors acres so they should NOT be starving. NOW this week I have had six die! They look like they are starving to death. No meat no muscle...full crops but starving! Wasting away?? I have other breeds, some I bought at the same time as the FRs and they look great, my old birds look great, my geese look great....these birds look horrid! I would be ashamed for anyone to see them! Should I call the Freedom Ranger company? Is this inherited? Anyone else have this happening? Makes me SICK! No need in butchering them, There is more meat on my Bantam Cochins! I don't know what to do now I have wasted time and a lot of money!
