Free Range Broilers Details

Day Old Free Range Broiler Baby Chicks

Hatching year round.

Production Free Range Broilers reach about 6 pounds live weight at about 9 to 11 weeks. Free Range Broiler chicks are a slow growing chicken breed which is great for pastured poultry and free range broiler poultry farms. They are a great alternative to the Cornish Cross which grows very quickly and is bred to produce in confinement. This breed is not an efficient egg layer.

Breeding Free Range Broilers together will not result in a second generation that is consistent with the parent stock.

History: These broiler strains are imported French hybrid strains that were developed from Continental and American heritage chicken breeds in the 1960's. They were started because of the Label Rouge program for free ranging chickens.

Colors Our free range broiler chicks come as a hatchery choice assortment of Tricolor, Redbro, and Yellow chicks.

Tricolor is a crele color pattern with barred color pattern for the tail and chest and an orange red barring pattern for the back with yellow shanks, beak, and skin.

Redbro is a Rhode Island Red color pattern with dark red feathers and a black tail. Red bro chicks have yellow beaks, shanks, and skin.

Yellow is a black tailed buff color pattern with buff feathers and black tail and wing feathers.

Status very common in Europe for pastured poultry raisers looking to raise farm fresh chicken.

American Poultry Association Class: Not accepted into the standard because this is a hybrid, not a pure breed.

Brooding Free Range Broilers: Free Range Broilers need a brooder for about 3-4 weeks. They start at 95 degree the first week, reduce that temperature by 5 degree each week. 

Feeding Free Range Broilers: 21-22% protein starter for the first 2-3 weeks; 18-19% protein grower until week 7; 16-17% protein finisher thereafter. 

Special Note: If any of your birds experience any leg problems, it is likely due to a deficiency. Vitamins added to their water will usually clear this up with 24-48 hours.
