The Rolin S is a moderate growing red broiler best suited for free range and pasture growing. This bird has a full and robust flavor due to its slightly higher fat and red meat content. Because of its moderate growth rate and superior genetics, you will find the aesthetic and flavor qualities of a heritage chicken coupled with good feed conversion and ruggedness many farmers desire.

Reared under Label Rouge guidelines or simply with an organic diet supplemented with foraging, the Rolin S is the best red broiler available. With a slightly higher fat content than the Cornish Cross, you'll have a more flavorful bird. Customers will accept nothing less once they are given the opportunity to taste this chicken from your farm.

For best performance, it is recommended at days 1-21 to start the birds with 21% protein. From days 21-30 the protein can be lowered to 19% and then the birds can be finished with 17% protein from 31 days to market. With good management, this bird will grow to a very healthy 6 pounds in 10 weeks. If you are looking the fastest growing and most economical chicken, it is best you try the Cornish Cross. If you want a bird intermediate between the Cornish Cross and Rolin S, try our Big Sur (coming soon!).
