On April 16 we will receive our shipment of 50 Cornish Cross broilers. We will grow them for 8 weeks and process them the same day as the Freedom Rangers. We will keep track of mortality, feed consumption, dressed weights, and have a taste test to compare the two breeds to see which ones we like the best. This is an exciting research project for our backyard farm. It will end when we drive across the United States from Maryland to Utah on the week of June 13 to conduct the taste test with Michael & Marisa’s family. I can’t wait to put the first Freedom Ranger and Cornish Cross on the barbecue spit. Get ready to fire up the grill Michael!
