We are so proud of our meat birds here at Hoover’s that we just had to name one after our little town of Rudd, Iowa. This "haus" loves to free-range and finishes out slower than the Cornish Cross Broiler, but the wait is worth it! The Rudd Ranger® is a versatile bird that can be raised in more confined areas or free-range environments but prefers the latter. Just like our wonderful Rudd residents, these birds are docile and get along with most other breeds. They have red plumage with dark tails and wing feathers. When dressed, the Rudd Ranger’s® body is more proportional compared to a broiler, making the dark meat almost equal the breast meat.
