These chicks will be 1-5 weeks old and will still need access to some sort of heat source to warm up until they are fully feathered.
Red Rangers are bred and raised specifically for meat production. They are a hybrid of the heritage egg-laying chickens selected for faster muscle growth and good foraging skills. This breed is different from the classic Cornish X because they are better foragers but do grow a bit slower, allowing for less health issues prior to butcher. Most reach slaughter-weight at between 10 and 12 weeks of age depending on the feed source. Due to intensive selection for rapid early growth and the husbandry used to sustain this, broilers are not genetically modified (GMO) just selectively bred, contrary to popular belief.
