The breast meat is in natural proportion to the leg meat. It has yellow skin, shanks and beak with dark red feathers showcasing black highlights. An excellent forager, the Red Ranger is able to withstand the free range or natural living environment very well.

Customer Product Reviews
We just harvested the first of these birds for us. The birds are incredibly hardy and easy to maintain. Zero mortality. Tasted fantastic. Remember: if it can walk to the feeder and run your yard, it is good!! As long as McMurray keep selling them we will keep raising them. Real free range.
We ordered 35 and received our birds on Aug. 11. I was impressed at how healthy they all are. As of today, (9/6/12) they're about 4 weeks old and we still have all 39 that arrived - no lameness or mortality issues. I'm also very impressed with the customer service we received when the birds were en route. Great Job!
