Red Ranger Meat Birds

Anybody have any experience with raising Red Ranger chickens for meat birds?  Looking to raise another batch this spring but want to take a break from the heritage breeds (turkens, delawares) we tried last year.  Feed conversion was a bit to costly and the birds in the freezer just are not the best for roasted chicken dinners.  Making some great stock and soups though?  We don't want to raise the commercial Cornish X because they seem to have way to many problems.  And after helping friends process way overdue birds (14 weeks, 13+ lbs, Gross Frankenchickens)
