Anyone use this hatchery before? They have a broiler bird called a "Heritage White" that is a alternative to CornishX. We use Freedom Rangers from Freedom Ranger Hatchery in PA. We are very happy with them except for the dark pin feathers. I just wish Freedom Rangers were white. This is what the site says about the "Heritage White":

The Heritage White chicken comes from the old White Plymouth Rock stock. Its sturdy frame and well balanced body makes it a great meat bird, not like the sluggish Cornish Cross with its giant breast.
Our bird is bred to perform outside where it can earn its keep using a keen sense of awareness along with great foraging ability. If you want a baby chick that’s healthy, grows well into a tasty chicken with good feed conversion and usually reaches market weight around nine weeks, try our Heritage White."

Any thoughts or experience? Thanks!
