- We’re 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 in 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 tail 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.
