"Kendall appears to be breeding himself!!! Five "chicks" and probably more on the way. He'll need to sell a lot of chickens to pay his future "chicks" bills. You go boy!"

"I just settled in the 62 freedom rangers that came today. They arrived alert and healthy looking. No losses. I just wanted to let you know how nice it is to receive healthy birds. We ordered the same amount of chicks last spring and they were great. They work out well with our pasturing system and they are also quite pretty to look at. We are excited to continue with your freedom rangers. Keep up the good work!"

"My friends and I decided to raise some meat birds in our urban environments for the first time this fall and chose Freedom Rangers after some comments on a chicken board. We ordered 30 and received 32. We processed half at 10 weeks and the other half at 12.
These birds were fantastic in every way. None were lost and processed weights were between 4 and almost 8 pounds. The meat is fantastic, the birds were a joy to raise. We'll be ordering 50 more in February!"

"The FR chickens I got were fast growing and very tender. I liked them better than the Cornish X."

"Hi folks, I had to pass along some of the good calls I have been getting from my customers this year. Folks are calling me and telling me that its the best chicken ever. So I wanted to pass the news along. I raised them free range and veggie feed, took a little longe but worth the time. I will be back next year. Keep up the fine work. Bob Faller"

"Hi just wanted potential customers and JM Hatchery to know how pleased we were with the colored rangers. I have never had such a great bird show up at my house ever - when we received our day old chicks they were all alive and bright eyed and bushy tailed! We did not lose any during or after shipping and none of them had pastey butt (not stressed from shipping). We butchered at 13 weeks and all the birds dressed out from 4.11 - 7.10 lbs, most dressed out at around 6lbs and above. I also want to thank Joel for his patiences in answering all my questions. I am hoping to re-order in a couple weeks and doing it all over again before christmas - since we do are own butchering I need to be done before it gets to cold. From my house to yours---We thank you!"

Freedom rangers live up to their name!
"I just wanted to say that these chickens live up to their name! The Freedom Rangers that I ordered from your hatchery are now 5 weeks old and bulking up nicely. We are raising them as a small flock of backyard meat chickens. From day one they have been active and curious, and once they went out on pasture they displayed all of the foraging activity that I had been hoping for. They roam around eating lots of grass and the occasional insect, watch the sky vigilantly for hawks, and scoot quickly to cover if they spot any danger. This is very important because I wanted them to be truly freerange, and now they can have their freedom during the day, and get locked up in the chicken tractor at night. They are appropriately wary of people, but since my boys handled them so much as chicks they are not alarmed when we come near, and consent to be held and herded around as needed. All around our experience has been very positive so far, and we can't wait to see how they taste!"

"We have a small organic fowl farm in Climax NY, Susie's Climax Creations. Your Freedom Rangers have surpassed our expectations even with the terrible heat spell we had thru July. We had to schedule to take them to the "salon" two weeks earlier then expected! They filled out wonderful. Thank you for your birds and great service. Susie"
