Perfect for raising your own bird to table

Red are the typical colors of these birds' feathers. They are slower growing than the Cornish Cross, it takes them eleven to twelve weeks to grow to four or five pounds+. However, due to this they have fewer health problems than the Cornish hybrids and can live in a free range environment.

Red Slow Grow Broilers are said to possess a better flavor than the industrial Cornish hybrids, because of the more traditional methods used to raise them.

Most Red Broiler chickens follow traditional, sustainable and environmentally-friendly farming methods to ensure the highest quality chicken possible. Giving chickens free range allows them to move around opposed to caged chickens, which results in a more nutritious and better tasting chicken.

Raise them along side your other chickens.  Don't have to worry about over feeding them or any of the other health issues that come with the fast growing cornish.  Perfect for beginners.
