Aug 23 – They are growing so very fast, these Ranger chicks.  They are 39 days old here.  The light-colored one in the middle of the pack is the rooster I will probably keep.   He’s the only tri-color Ranger we have.  The others are Red/Black and Buff .  I had chosen the tri-color when they were 2-day old chicks, and he has grown to be the biggest of the chicks.  There is one Red/Black rooster who is very friendly and runs to me every time I enter the chicken yard.  It will be hard to decide which to keep.  One rooster and three hens is the plan, that way he can fertilize their eggs and I can hatch out our next batch of meat chickens in the incubator.
